Geetima Baruah Sarma
A Sleepless Night
She kept awake
whole night long,
refused to bow
and a thought
round and round.
and hours gone,
at the threshold,
the moon sailed
through the sky
but her thought
round and round.
She felt miserable
and it seemed as if
huge black curtains
pulled before her,
blocking her vision
of radiant light,
all by herself.
