As the city fell asleep- K.B

  As the city fell asleep

 

 
As the city
Fell asleep
The last
Hustlers
Were
Going home.

A fire
Was burning
In the sky.

Everyone
Was waiting
For the end
Of it.

Transfixed
People
Were
Walking
In a daze
With wide
Eyes
Following
The flames.

They seemed
Drunk,

But they
Were not.

The earth
Started
Shaking,

Ribbons
Of blue
Velvet
Appeared
Out of
Nowhere
As an
Invitation
For the chosen
To climb
A ladder
Towards
The heavens.

A chasm
Opened
In the ground,

Swallowing
The ones left
With the darkest
Of features.

Children
Evaporated,

Cats and dogs
Too.

As the fire
Was coming
To an end,

The sky
Began
Folding,

The sun
Grew closer
And hotter.

In the end…

In the end….

We were
All saved.

Voices
Were
Singing
As the sun
Was reflecting
Itself
In the waters
Of still lakes,

Like the burning
Eyes of the lovers.

In the end..

In the end…

It was just
A dream ;

I was happy
To breathe
Again.

The slightest
Touch
Of water
On my cheeks
Would awake
Gratitude
And peace,

The soft air,
Not yet wintery
(Cruel and biting)
Was settling
My mind
On some
Safe spot.

Life itself
Started
Coming
Back
In my limbs,

I could feel
Its sheer strength
And vitality

And not a hint
Of sadness
And resignation
Could be seen
Anymore ….

To fill
The valley,

I chose
A woman,

To fill
The fountain,

I chose
My father’s
And forefathers
Wisdom
Reflected
In a stream.
