The Wait


By Khushi Singh

The door to the heart
Is still left ajar,
In the hope that there will be shine,
In the dark skies.

The never-ending nights,
Are still sleepless.
Hoping for lullabies,
From an altruistic soul.
To get a sound nap,
Far away from the crestfallen world.

The beat inside is still barricaded,
From the mesmerising rhythm.
Trying to barge,
The poignant past.

The boulevards are still lifeless,
Waiting for a wayfarer.
To solve the labyrinth,
Of the pesky journey.

The stars in the great dark sky are still waiting,
For an enlivened energy.
To fathom them,
Into constellations.

  1. Beautiful words, like the riddle of love. Curious if the image is yours also, I like the way it leads into the mystery beyond the doorway.
