Night - Poem by RAJ VIKRAM

Woke up in a daze
as day gave way to night
the mighty night
the inviting night.

When did sleep come
to the weary eyes?
was it when the dreary mind
fell to the charms of sleep.

Dreariness is not draining
if it is second nature.
I want to wake up to the night
the mighty night.

Bidding adieu to the
shallow day, the hollow day
Let the night suck all
the melancholy as only it can.

I want to escape the shallow day
I just want to embrace this night
In this awake state, I know peace
peace of night, the mighty night.
