the night of lights

Pic : Self

lights
lamps
brighten
paths,

friends
family
do
the same,

may you
have
enough
of both,

to share
the smiles
and light up
this night.

you can
breathe in
that
invisible air,
but you can’t
hold on to
the fragrances
it carries therein,

for what
pleases
and teases
the hungry senses,
is often
as momentary
as the tick
of a clock,

what can’t
seep in
through those
emotionless lungs,
the heart
might yearn
in all the ways
that hurt,

but the blood
that runs
seeks more
to live,
than just
the hollow trickery
of easily inebriated
senses.

sold on discount
i often wonder
my worth,

did my
intrinsic
value fall,

or was there
just an
inherent need,

to clear out
my irrelevance 
on the shelf,

do i now live below
my creator’s value
of me,

or just pretend
somehow
to be worthy

of the price,
that you paid
to own,

my this
assumed
discounted worth.

reminders
of my existence,

still lying
as i left them around,

in words
i came alive,

in words
i sang my world,

my story
now left behind,

on paper
that gave refuge,

did i try to build
a monument,

or was it just water
that needed to flow,

was it an attempt
to preach,

or was it the need
to unlock my own doors,

did i
play with words,

or did my emotions
play me,

does it even
really matter,

when one’s time
is done,

reminders of my
existence,

will someday
fade like me,

pages scattered
like leaves,

as autumn
embraces me.

seasons change
and what a blessing
that they so
predictably do,

stretch that analogy
to people around
and yes, i say
they change too,

you say
once their purpose done
like seasons
they must move on,

and those that stay
consistent throughout
like the sun
are far and few,

i nod
in agreement
and so does
the old tree,

it has seen
them change
and learnt to grow
through each.
