Dark Lane

I walk in a lonely

dark lane,

I fear the night

Cicadas tease me

with their low hiss.

My home is still far away,

I hit a stone

and my heart freezes

at the sharp sound.

I look around

and fear turns into wonder

as a bud blossoms

into a purple flower.

Bees swarm

around the new-born flower

and I find a place

in a rusty bench.

I don’t want to move

I don’t want to go home

I swap my fear

for joy and wonder,

glued to the mesmerizing

beauty of the night

Night

The fascination of the night

The secret it beholds

Erasing sorrows of the cruel day

Offering calmness all the way

Pacifying many a raging hearts

Soothing many a confused minds

Taking them into a world of oblivion

A paradise of calm and peace.

Who compares night to gloom?

And the day to joy?

I will take darkness anytime

Take away the scorching sun

And show me the way to oblivion.
