No Star I Can See


There is no star,
Which I can see
From my window...
Boundless darkness
Is here in the
Chest of night.
The painted sky,
I saw in the daylight
Now is wiped away
As my last poem
I wrote but made
it vanish from
The page, because
It couldn't tell
The blank story,
Of my desolate
Life...no star
Still is visible
From this window..
Someone has spread
The melted pitch
On the road of my
Moped sky..I stare
And stare all night.
The caged breeze,
The starless sky
And night, none can share
My loneliness, I know
They are no living
Persons like me...
But, they can drown me
In complete void of
Sea of utter darkness.
One star can do this;
Only one star......
Thru my little window,
It's flickering light,
Can fill my dark room,
With its heavenly touch!

    Oh Nilakishi, this is absolutely beautiful, it is breathtaking and I feel so much when I read this. Only one star that is upon you with its Divine Light it shines through you in its completeness. Always! :) Love (Report) Reply

    The piece is great Nilakshi, I like it. The arrangement, pattern and formation is brilliant.
    However, I'd have to scrutinize the lines pretty well to be able to underscore constructive criticism.

    P.S. I think you may add a little hyperbolic contrast;
    'My loneliness on my sleepless pillows,
    I know there...' (Report) Reply
