A Poem by Elizabeth Shaji

In the foggy night;i see a flicker of light
I follow it for i believe
It will lead me out of this void
This dark void with no end in sight
The light twinkles feebly
As i tread ahead with cautionary steps
It dances playfully
As if it perceives my hesitation
Where did it come from;this insecurity of mine?
The luminous entity is my only hope
Why can't i bring myself to trust it?
The light,uncaring about what i feel
Jumps gleefully~drifting further apart
I make up my mind and chase after it
Soon the distance between us closes
I capture it in my hands;
It diminishes completely
A sense of dread fills my heart as my
Only hope disappears before my eyes
But then i realise;the night is gone
As the sun appears bashfully from over the clouds
