Poetry 2014 Longlist, Shrestha Roy

A Night's Valour

I have embraced the nights..
Fallen in love with all its dense rides,
with hypnotic slides.
Days with petty hopes,
yet i grope the black,
I chose the midway crack;
Blinking into the reality,
standing meticulously,
strong and mighty,
I have turned into a devil with tremendous wit,
a dash of humour,
strengthening my armour....
the lonesome sadness is devoured.
The nights hook me at first sight,
devilish thoughts with delight,
that blights the light,
slithering onto the skin....
Darkness gliders in, just like its tonight.
