In response to the Tuesday Prompt at GoDOGo Cafe prompt: Beneath the surface of the night


Beneath the surface of the night

your sorrows paints 

a different shade of happiness

a different shade of grey


The night paint kohl in your eyes

underline the magic in your gaze;

it casts the spell

of  your tantalizing looks

turning my wishes ablaze


Takes me, the stranger

into the whirlwind

of your desire;

spins me around

sets my heart on fire


The night whisper in your ears 

my sweetest desires

the forbidden wishes

I so want to come true;


It takes away

all the darkness

strip all the loneliness

dissolve all the malice in me and you


It unveils the mystery

which intrigues you for so long;

rekindle that fire, stir you slowly

keeps the emotions going strong


The silent night

gives voice to my muted soul;

resonate the love

etched in me and

serenades you from my core


It defines your beauty

in its elegant silhouette;

sunrise starts the day

but wearing the night

as an amulet.

–Megha Sood
