Shadows - Poem by Sneha Murali

This poem is a collaboration of mine and my good friend Abhimanyu Raman's verses......a poem risen completely from team work! !

Of The Light and Darkness
Watch me,
As I Sleep
They follow me,
into my dreams
But for some reason,
still unknown
They disappear,
As i enter,
the land of the waking
Even though its light,
some faint hope,
holds my hand
As i make,
my last stand
For even if i have woken,
from fitfull slumber
The dreams i saw,
will fade in number
Leaving me lost
between the real and the virtual
Unable to comprehend
what's fact and what's not

I lie in bed,
my face towards the wall
In a trance,
I catch myself before I fall
In front of me a silhouette,
coloured in with black
moving in flow to my body and my self
My wary dark counterpart,
staring at me, us both divided
by only one brick wall
Waiting for the brink of dawn,
when light rushes in,
bringing it to total annihilation
The distant fly buzzing above me,
appears to dance
with it's black clone
I must once again disown,
this trance and return
to reality
Where no clones shall follow,
with docile footsteps
into the newborn day
