An Unknown Dusk

An Unknown Dusk

Flecks of a dusk unknown
Fall on a wounded afternoon.

The din of a couple’s fight, next door
Breaks the calm of my floor.

Fear and happiness both persist,
It’s hard to break a lifetime’s habit.

When one has decided to leave,
Why lurch for what’s falling through the sieve?

Better to go in silence, and not fall prey,
And, hope to catch the fading radiance of a dying day.

The moon will not stop to spread its golden-haired glory,
So, why will you not continue the song and a story?

    Dear Amrita

    Yes whatever happens happens.. and when one has to go, better go early than late and as you say…
    ‘The moon will not stop to spread its golden-haired glory,
    So, why will you not continue the song and a story?’
    Why not continue to sing the song…
    Thanks for sharing..
