Encounter

When he came to her home first time,
he knew, she was scared of him;
but he said nothing, just sat on the dining table;
had dinner and gone!

She realized, it was depressing to live alone
Bored to tears, not a friend to share life
So, she loved DAY, married with more and more work
When worn-out, she left DAY at the office;
When went home, then NIGHT followed her!

When she opened the locked home
NIGHT felt bashful, stepping in with her
Darkness scurried away in dread fear
Seeing power, spewing out light!

Who kept the fridge door open?
Who splintered a wine bottle on the flooring?
A cracked egg, separated from the shell
The golden dome sat over the white fluid pond!

She hurried to the bed room in terror
Followed by NIGHT in horror
He was on her bed with his consort
Enjoying a mango feast in glee!
Intimidated her by bullying
Nervous NIGHT could only stare at her
Didn't he take over her house?
After ransacking everything she had
Shocking her out of her shell?
*****
