When night engulfs darkness
I feel exemplified with sorrow
Twinkling stars and full moon
Never cause me to morrow
My nerves are at extreme agitation
To tranquilize and rest the nerves
I take pills and try to sleep
The pain I have feeling for long
Has hurt me very deep
I rarely see dreams
And by chance when nerves
Become again awry
I get dreams like blurred images
As images in shaking waters
I see only grief and sorrow
My road blocked
Heads getting chopped
Crying children
Weeping women
Creeping orphans
All sort of ugly things
Nothing brings me bliss
I have forgotten warmness of a kiss
Just life has become hazy
I have become lazy
And little crazy for the ultimate doom
Which can only end my never lasting gloom………
