Night Aglow

 

A stranger in the stark dark park

Was walking right beside me

At times, even behind me

As that skinny dog who’d bark

Felt like a Hitchcock movie

So mystic and so hazy

I felt like not a prey though

Nights like this would just amaze me

The night at park was dark I said

But it was a lie I realize

For there were stars and hopeful glow

And they would flicker like tearful eyes

My eyes were wet and I was high

If only on a memory

Which stood right there and drew me near

As I stepped right in the balcony

I sat right there with doubt and tear

Right inside the gazebo

Where we’d sat one night and reminisced

And had been for once not lonely people

It tortured me and held me high

The memory of an aftertaste

The brimming of a hopeful heart

The ending of an endless start

When I left the park and all the dark

As if running to myself,

I just looked back and saw the dog

And the stranger was my self

    WOW. JUST WOW!

  3. Two worlds existing side by side,the outside real world, and the inner,unescapeable world. Heart and intellect. The skinny dog, the stranger, the stars, teary eyes, are all real, depending on the perspective. Great job!
