Strangeness

In the dimly lit corridors Between the two realms Of sleep and consciousness Are lost in the cruel haze of wakefulness

Strangeness is a poem written by Maryam H. Viqar and shared with The Ugly Writers for the month of June.

 

Strangeness

 

Last year’s Autumnal moon

Vanished

Into a dreary, monotonous day

Old melodies hummed Lastnight

Before sleep

Are forgotten

After one dream

Ruthlessly shattered

Into countless shards

Verses woven while gliding

In the dimly lit corridors

Between the two realms

Of sleep and consciousness

Are lost in the cruel haze

of wakefulness

Rhythmic Couplets writ once

Upon someone’s breath

Now distress like

Coarse cacophony

Words imprisoned, enchained into misery

All fountains have long ceased to flow

Even dreams fade

By morning Sun’s growing light

This time

when it passes

Shall leave me a stranger

To myself.
