Unblinking in the night I sit~by Shashi Gupta


After two sleepless nights, this is what came tumbling out last night….

 

Unblinking in the night I sit

Unblinking in the night I sit
Like a statue forged, stuck to the ground.
So heavy hearted, it forgets to beat,
But every thump makes me tremble so.
The night birds shriek, call out to mate,
The holes all blocked in the sky.
No ray of hope, life passes on,
Is there no release for me?
Each breath I take, drags me down,
My roots won’t let me move on.
I sit here in the inky night,
The day to me, seems not too bright.
I close my eyes, ah, is that heaven I see?
My eyes too burn and melt inside.
I long for a place to rest my head
Before my world goes up with a bang.
SG.
