Shadows of the Night

Every moon night
he walks the land,
wet foot prints appear
on the dry sea shore
until dawn approaches.
Over the same path
walks she,his shadow –
a growing shape
with each minute,
a sparkling beauty
with each etched line,
And she stands proud,
at the point he left,
morphed into music
she smiles to herself,
she sheds a wing,
and begins to play,
notes vibrate in air,
lifting her arms along,
and the wings spread
refracting the sun rays
and making tiny rainbows,
all over the sea ans sand.
The sun melts her along,
the music fades, she is gone.
Till next moon light,
when he will be born again
and bring to life,his love,
the shadow of night.

Inspired from the Image Prompt @ Writer’s Island

I swear am bewitched by this amazing image !! So much love this !!

A lonely soul

NaPoWriMo Day#6 prompt was “Ekphrastic Poetry” . I had always wanted to write on a musical prompt to see how much I can engage myself in a musical piece. After listening to many videos , this one caught my attention and so the following lines were crafted –

In land of mortals,
I walked proud and tall,
smiles in my pockets
butterfly dreams to walk.
In lanes of beauty
I grew without care
till my soul hummed,
and sang happy tales.
Devil incarnate
you set your eyes on me
trapped in neither world
I was doomed to be.
a long time you took
to set the traps right
was it not hard on you,
to burn in the same fire!
stripped of all logic
In dungeons my soul rot
day by day it sank deeper
scared to see any hope.
I dreamed of you still
feeding on the sole desire,
to taste your pain once
and breath into your fire.
To whisper in your ears
words that were unknown
to be punished severely
for sins i only thought.
did i amuse you enough
or were you hurt as much
from the idea of my love
from the passion in my touch ?
Since the day you vanished
I wonder why you left me so,
mending, hurting, bleeding,
a lonely heart,a battered soul.
