raise me some time
high into the moonbeams
up to the stars…
tumble over large swathes of hush,
-the nights become bright and licorice
I dip into the
fields of candy, and mountains of toffeeTake a line and follow it.
There are connections... änd
Dream starts walking on my feet...
A torch blinks near the window
the wind wafts in, knocks on the door
bed disheveled, I step in front of the mirror
quickly dress up in ceremonial costume
highlight my eyes with kohl …
for him…!My mind wanders like a magic carpet story
Far, far away midst the dimming light
…multi-coloured butterflies pass by me.
They tell me….I am just
A few steps closer to him.
I freeze the moment!
Like in college romances:
I seek imprisonment
I like to be a captive.
Ah, dreams! Short-lived dreams!
They do open floodgates of hopes and desires.
So, dream you must....
Dream indigo, violet or blue...
Dress your heart in night's citadel
till the dreams are fulfilled.
