Misnomer



By satya pattnaik
I am following the shadow

From my childhood days

It is sometime behind with knife

And Sometime with smiles in front

It is sometime with wild mirth

Some time with innocent look

To understand this mystery

I walked on to tyrant sun

Desired to be on moon to burn

Stepped on to thorns and bled up

Responded to Rosés' red lipsto kiss

Brought my comfort to the dance floor

However, to my surprise I found

Million dead shadows

My molten body mass

A black door with dark corridor

Only a candle light flickered

To guide me

For a hopeless destination

I thought falling in love

With my shadow and trust it

Even after being adult

Was a cursed and relation

Thy name was a misnomer
