Light / Poem by Ashok K. Bhargava

 
Poem by Ashok K. Bhargava
 
 
Light
 
Your soft beam touch
my naked loneliness
 
a cool wave embrace
of a Milky Way.
 
You are a moon
that hides dark shame
 
devoid of innocence
choking light.
 
I am hope
a crush of crushed
 
bones
underneath the skin.
 
In the end we are
darkness of monsoon clouds
 
not the reflection
of light on the river surface.
 
Shards of light
torn and broken
 
I am not afraid
of darkness anymore.
 
Ashok K. Bhargava
