Moonless Night

via Daily Prompt: Adrift

I have to say this, these Daily prompts are amazing! They really challenge and push you out of your writing comfort zones. In last two weeks I have discovered some potentials in me. So happy… 🙂 Here’s another try at poetry. Hope you guys like it!

Moonless Night


Black walls closing on me

are damp and wet

like a prolonged moonless night

where the sun has forever set


Stars fall of the skies in the

thundering storms and the rains splashing

My own shadows run away from me

all the hopes and the dreams crashing


Lightning strikes opening a few old scars,

leaving back new wounds to heel

hopeless despair, echoing silence

and the pinching darkness is all that I feel


The dark clouds swirling Adrift and

the winds leaving cold hollow traces

bring back all the memories

the painful emptiness shattering me to pieces…
