The Night


Night.
She’s black, bewitching, beautiful
Draped in a star studded cloak
Adorning the moon on her forehead
And a grey veil of clouds
Hiding dark secrets
Within herself

A Temptress
Casting her spell on the world
A Seductress
With many lovelorn lovers
A Warrior
Dangerous, when provoked
A Goddess
To be worshipped by us all

She’s dark...
She’s Light.

Here is how my car pool mate would have responded to this poetry..

"Abe Abe Abe Abe Abe yaaaaar(n) kya(n) hai(n) yaaar(n)... kuch samajh nahi(n) aaya(n) yaaar(n)... abeeeeeeee"

she is a mystery..her enigma untold..
she is ubiquitous everywhere i behold..
she is unfaithful..soon she would be gone..
the orgasmic darkness..marks the dawn..

Nights in Mumbai are particularly beautiful with those illuminated skyscrapers!! I remember hanging in the balcony every night to see the unending queue of cars crawling on the streets and those tall buildings with every room lit up brightly.. I love night!!!
