Ebb and Flow

Night crawls in like the strings
of violin playing raag Bhairav
slowly, with thoughts of you filling
like rain in my parched mind.
I let you fill my emptiness
with worthless conversations.
I start flowing around you
we become seamless, nameless
The rhythm of darkness spreads
swelling the tempo of our hearts
You are my moon, enticing, and
I dance like high tides on the shore
till the drowsy eyes of dawn incite
the drowned hours, my forlorn face,
and this piece of poetry.
