Shadows Are Going Down


Sometimes my heart beats are going faster
But no sign of wrong time or
Not even time moves anti clockwise
Certainly water saturated and overflowed
Through the river flood plain-
I see thousand drops of tear
Flows through her eyes-
The mistake before crucified her heart
Her tear flows through horizon
Vaporized and dry and ultimately
Turns to a volatile buried river
Even no sign of life
Time flows onward but -
History captured time into a cage
Birds sign and time passes and
I am standing beside that river
You never touched it but feel
As because the place is still there
Shadows are going down when
The dawn comes in front of sun

    A very intense and haunting write. Deep feelings are expressed in
    this write. Shadows will only remain for a short time the Sun will
    soon melt it away and the gloom will disappear. Time can only
    go forward. Good. (Report) Reply
