996: Pretentious Sunshine - Poem by Amit Biswas

You came as sunshine to my normal life,
Had not seen people closely of your type,
Bright my life became like never before, also wide,
Started doing things, had never done earlier right.

So momentary it was, never knew in advance,
That you had just a purpose in mind,
Never intended to stay beyond the grind,
But why did you promise me the contrary,

Sun rises everyday only to set again,
My sun had set, never to rise again,
My normal life was good enough, I never cribbed,
The darkness of the sunset has left me dead,

Lost even the moonlight I was blessed with,
Undermined the soft but steady against the bright.
What was my mistake, I just loved,
Realized pretension too late, after everything lost.

Professional help I had extended to many,
Pretension and favor was not required,
Why did you do this to me,
Have you ever inquired?
