Journey Through Darkness - Poem by Bijaylaxmi Sarangi
I have seen the dark.....
when my eyes get inutile......
mind too defeats....
running after the illusory n shady conflicts within.......
rope of life loosens while.......
as a desperate dry soul....
gets cheated by a mirage.....
frozen hands when gets lull.....
Breath didders n cherishes exemption.....
from garbled phantom lust of body......
passive of all the dealings…..
Like a crazy dove …..
towards the sharp light
n flies at its call…….
Behind me nothing but anguish
Everywhere intense dark
Liking tongue coming through
The grand whole of darkness
Rushes fast to consume away all being
Like a panicked prisoner fugitive
Crushing her thick breast
Life runs away far n fast…..
Still a longing arose
For the last touch of warmth
Craving for half built castle known
Elixir of unsaid words who pours
two drops of snoozes like petals of love
how comes I slept like never slept before
some where inside a cozy bed
what a sleep was that…..
may be to make me of a clean river
or a correct mirror…….
Opened my eyes then being beaten hard
By beams of light
Reluctant to forbear….
Baffled to see new faces n identity
Faded n forgotten old craving
N the Liking tongue of darkness
Only left with new thirst and hunger
New cries and smile
And new yielding
Knew then life as it is
Nothing sort of death, its step towards life
Nothing sort of darkness
Its beginning of light……..
