A Night to Remember...

A Night to Remember...

A Poem by Noor.92
"

It's us who decide whether we want to be happy & let go painful reminiscences..

"

That night, I will never forget


Rain was pouring and I was lying sleeplessly on my bed


Light was gone and it was pitch black


Moon had also hidden itself at the back


Suddenly there was a knock at the door


There was no one home, I was pretty sure


The door opened and there were two men


One in black, the other in white


Black one entered and loudly cried


Hello my friend here I am


To take you to the world of mine


U r wondering who am I?


Well, I am the one who makes you sigh


I am the master of sorrow and grief


And I surround people who lack relief


Come come with me…


There entered the man in white:


He spoke in a voice calm and light


Oh young master, I am here too


I am the king of happiness


To soothe you in your sorrow


To make you glad whenever you are sad


I will show you a new way to live


I will bring you out of your plight


And promise to show you a path of delight..!


I then turned towards my heart


And asked it eagerly what should I do, who is right?


My heart replied:


I leave it to you, it’s your choice


Do you want to live in pain or turn towards brightness and rejoice?


I then pondered for a moment


And decided what my heart desired


Goodbye I said to the black knight


And off I went with the man in white


Because I wanted to be happy, cheerful and bright


And no more would I live in pain and fright…

The verses filled with simplicity and grace are wonderful. The theme is interesting and I see below predictible, but it is uplifting and reminded me as it will others our journey in life is limited by our choices. Letting go of sorrows and choosing the path to happiness and joy is well expressed. I loved it all. Thank you. Dale

A nice poem with a nice atmosphere, although a bit predictable. Who wouldn't pick happiness over pain? Would have been exciting if there was some kind of twist to it that made the decision harder. Maybe both knights were faulty in some way, equally good or bad, richess or wisedom, family or career, or something that mimics the different paths in life. Anyway, that was the honest feedback (since we're in that group both). Despite of what I just said I did enjoy reading it. It had a religious kinda feel to it, made me think of the Grim Reaper and... Jesus I guess, or two of the four apocalyptic horsemen.

I guess its always best to choose the light, an excellent poem of good and bad, loved the story beginning of the storm and the men at the door, a classic of some class, thank you :)

Very special poem. Special form also, with the colors, but it's always good to choose for to be happy, cheerful and bright. Liked it, Noor. :)

As you wish.. :)
lovely poetry, such storytelling through words and a wonderful ending, however black and white shouldn't always be contrasting in a negative and positive light. black and white are colors and they don't define good and bad.

Yes I get your point....
Its just a little bit symbolism, nothing much.... :)
I love the format of this poem, very cool and well written. It brings many images to the imagination. "My heard replied" - is 'heard' supposed to be 'heart'?
