Nights

by M.D. Tahsin

The darkness engulfs us

like waves of shimmering black

The world becomes us

the silence becomes deafening

 

Our lives unfurl

with their many colours

among the Nights

that we have outlived

 

Nights that we have lived through

Nights that we have shelved

into stacks of our memories

 

Nights that defined

our moments of love

as taken from life.
