I stay up in my dreams throughout the night

Hopelessly striving with all might

To add a shape or maybe a face

Just a bit of colour,just a trace?

I walk barefoot on the dewy lawn

Feeling the cool breeze at dawn

The grass is green they say

And red turns the sky at this time of the day

I nod my head as I fondle a flower

Soft & fragrant in the early morning shower

And suppress a sigh when I hear them claim

“But you make a far prettier dame”

When I’m home I walk upto the looking-glass

Jealousy surfacing again,but I let it pass

For in some hours I’ll bid the bandages goodbye

And tomorrow I’ll stand here to look me in the eye!

    It was a really nice read,
    All the emotions, brought out well with those simple words
    of dejection, of loneliness, – all giving way to optimism at the end. Looking forward to a beautiful tomorrow!

    Like your blog template – looks good!

    All the best for the contest!
