A blazing sunset left a trail of new hues
Every evening, ever evolving
In the rosy dusk, a lone star caught my eye
The one that dared to intervene the surreal calm.
I reached out to catch the star but instead,
It was me who got entwined in its sparkle.
It was not lonely up there, only surrounded by eternity
Flickering and winking – that light
Enveloping me with its dignified strength.
It found my own light to set my world ablaze
Illuminating a myriad of paths unfolding before me
And for the first time, the choice was truly mine.
In the starlight, I traced footsteps unique and selfishly mine.
Addictive liberation of a kind yet untouched but yearned.
On a whim I gave myself up like a tide to the moon
High and low, trapezing with the flow
Feeling and listening to the undercurrents of my heart
And finally, giving in to its pull with wings on my feet.
After so long, I have heard what I really want. Been spending time which has been all about me. And I am loving it, unabashedly. Below is what has become the theme song of my life presently.
