Alone in the night
I lie on my bed,
Gaping into the darkness.
The crickets chirp,
The frogs croak,
The nocturnal birds continuously call…
I, confined in the darkness of my room;
They, sheltered in the darkness of the night.
I, search for words to call you,
They, without words make love,
To their mates…
This human life suffocates me,
I find in it no humanity.
Being loved is so difficult,
That it has become an absurdity.
Lust and lechery overrules other emotions,
Here, I lay on my bed,
Drenched in my own perspiration.
The outside world follows its daily routine,
Lying alone on my bed,
Gaping into my inner darkness!
