Asad Ali


I Dance In The Dark


With no music, no applause
No hope, no regret
I dance in the dark

Deep into woods where my shadow is barred
Where even I was stopped to spectate myself
I dance in the dark

Through depths of the sleepless night
Beyond the edges of the dreamless sight
I dance in the dark

Far from the spotlight
Away from the shadows of bread and fame
I dance in the dark

Showing gratitude for the gift of being and to honor
The light not to be frustrated with thickest of murk
I dance in the dark
