Beauty In Black

Poem By Rini Shibu

The roads are many to walk
And light is seen at the end
Full of flowers and lush greenery
always you wanted to run through
The sudden darkness blocks the way
Pulls you  from heading the run
Makes you to slip at every step
No one holds you to guide the way
and the dry tears envelope you
Hands which hold in the darkness
protects you from the demons but
never lead the way out from the dark
You will start to perceive beauty in black
And try to scribble with ink in white
Will it reach to the world of light?
Without moving from this night

Comments about Beauty In Black

It is a brilliant poem Rini, you have astutely depicted on black with beauty. The concluding lines need great perception to answer the question. I quote... You will start to perceive beauty in black And try to scribble with ink in white Will it reach to the world of light? Without moving from this nigh Thanks for sharing.
part3... : : Hands which holds in the darkness...... never leads the way out from the dark.. Oh! ! One reads these lines with a lump in the throat.. A 100+++
part 2... Your poem echoes this prophesy of darkness. When you write : : You will start to perceive beauty in black And try to scribble with ink in white: : , I can imagine the teardrops in your eyes... The horror! : : Of darkness at the end of the tunnel..: : Almost losing confidence in life.. : : The sudden darkness blocks the way Pulls you from heading the run Makes you to slip at every step: : And the tears welling in your eyes blocks your vision...
Hi Rini, There is a very famous couplet by Malayalam poet Akkitham Achyuthan Namboothiri: : : Velicham dukkhamaaNuNNee Thamassallo sukhapradham...: : (light is painful, it is darkness that is comforting..)
This is a very thought invoking and interesting poem about beauty in black.

Loneliness

When you are in the midst of darkness
Where loneliness engulfs your soul
Twinges of hopelessness felt
Chirping sound of crickets heard

On that dark night when I was not able to sleep
When I wanted to escape from this earth
to a different galaxy..  I flew high and landed in this galaxy of poetry
Where I am happy and more satisfied than ever before
