Narendra Kumar Arya- A Poem


By my closed eyes you could infer I am a narcoleptic
So could you deduce from the sea of dreams that I splatter around
Also the face of darkness that hangs loose like a pendulum
Provides ample opportunities to your skinned reason
To declare a nocturnal
Is this creature.

Yes, night descends as a respite to your suspicions
But I can flee the nether of the day
Burning with thy presence
So repulsive, so crude
The whole earth, even
Vibrating with your ghostly laughter
Starts spinning with displeasure.

Why do I need open my eyes?
What’s there for me to see?
