The night stumbles upon
the tint of amber
and dreams fall out
of my clammy hands
leaving bare desires
shattered on the floor
as I lie on the edge
of my empty bed

the stars are gone
and so are you
but I live with this hope
to hold on to
that I will meet you soon
and will hold you tight
when our dreams cross again
on some slumberous night.

        1. Oh ! Hope you are feeling better now, Sarah. I too have not been very active on the forum lately, partially due to health reasons as well as due to work pressure. You take care of yourself and I would look forward to your posts. 😊

          Much love !

      1. I understand the work pressure Chhaya and how it can be worrisome often.
        I hope now you will take better care of yourself and deliver your best once again.

  1. I’m cheating myself by reading your poetry without a cup of tea. I know better than that. I should have set the right ambiance for this.

    Seriously, you gotta get a poetry book. I would so buy it!! I can see the perfect evening set up at my house. Tea, my cat, a nice afghan over my legs and poetry.

    1. Aww…that’s so sweet of you to say so, Faith ! You just touched my heart with this. I haven’t thought about a book yet, but many readers have been suggesting that I come out with one. With your kind wishes, may be soon the right opportunity for a book would emerge. I am grateful to you for your continuous encouragement. Please do keep reading and sharing your love for my poems. It does mean a lot to me ! 😊

      Hugs !
