Night Watch

Awake for hours and staring at the ceiling
Through the unsettled stillness of the night
He grows possessed of the obsessive feeling
That dawn has come and gone and brought no light.

Crisp and concise, yet the poem, with an apt title, clearly draws a picture of night watching 'Through the unsettled stillness of the night'. I commend poet Rajnish Mongia for 'seeing through' the poem and bringing out the gist of it, shared with his own wisdom.
Inner darkness or the pervading pessimism does not allow us to see light of positivity. Beautifully expressed by the poet. Thanks.
Awake! ! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.

The night passed with a sad heart and troubled mind. Very nice.
