Mirror short poem

Photo by AMagill

In the quiet room, I was all alone.
On the laptop screen, the onslaught of
Primitive memories was making me cool.
The lamps were not lighting the streets.

While deleting the texts, I felt as if
Some people were murmuring outside!
Perhaps staying alone was a mistake.
Told my heart, “Need courage, brother!”

The night has descended a long distance
Down the slope. Everything is at peace again.
Thought, the one who has exaggerated the gloom,
Is demanding nothing but sleep now.

At this time, a pitiful tune came floating by-
This is not the moaning of any human!
This is the aubade of the black cat.
They don’t like the full-moon night!

No flicker in the eastern sky yet.
The helpless mouse is watching the pole-star;
…It thinks about the white shadow.
The tiger’s aunt comes howling…!

The cat’s cry got lost down the other lane.
Remembered the incense-smoke’s company!
They can love the darkness.
Even in the darkness, they find light.
Where, …We don’t find it!
