Poetry 2023 Longlist, Sakshi Bhatnagar

Darkness, A Souvenir

The broad daylight as it descends

Paving way for the night to wend

Butterflies flutter and flowers bloom

As they start wrapping themselves in dusk’s cocoon

Thus inviting the stars in the ether

Adding sparkles to this moment like a glitter

O My Love! We’re miles apart

Separated by sky but close to hearts

Let this darkness be a souvenir

Of me being near

To tell you that I always cared

And knew that loneliness made you scared

I promise that soon we’d be together

Embracing each other like forever

Sitting by each other's side

Holding each other tight

Till then , let this darkness be a souvenir

Of me being near.
