When Became Darkness Visible
by Rima Sahamandal
That day when I had your glance, ***
Heart skipped a beat and veins commenced to dance,
love paved a way from eye to heart,
A tantalizing story which was about to start.
I dreamt to be engrossed in your smell,
And to remain enchanted in your spell
But careless love cheated so well,
Gave all dreams marvellous farewell.
She built a castle in your heart,
Played in it and made it dirt,
Now it became a barren land,
I decorated it with flowers,
Yet left with sand.
You took her in arms and hold her face,
Touched her with intense passionate grace,
She rendered grey clouds in your blue sky,
And now I crave for that love in your eyes.
You held my hand and went to the shore,
And unveil all wound which long you store,
I embraced you tight to convey,"you are mine"
But heart silently asked,"can I ever be yours?"
Tormented, agonized, I cried lonely,
And candle beside casts light feeble,
Which doesn't dispel the darkness,
Instead it makes my darkness visible.
