I’m just somebody

whether they knew

in my solitude

to the moon I talk…, and even then if appears

to the stars I complain…, and even then if it blinks

with the chant of wind I knit silence

and passed the time with a small candle glowing reluctantly

o how sad
this heart wrapped in bitterness thus not able to welcome love

these eyes were not able to gaze the world which clouded by hypocrisy

this tongue not able to spell the misery of soul which wallowed in loneliness

and they called me as

a cool breeze that touches the dried soul

harp’s string that calmed the rhythm of heart

and my poem were the words of gods

their assessment was too high

gosh….,   I’m just somebody

whose befriended with night and sleeping in the cocoon of loneliness

whose thought and feelings were searching for the justification
of self and the greatest meaning of life
