Waiting to see a Daybreak

Standing alone at one end of the street
Is nerve wrecking;
Staring from nowhere to nothingness
Chills my spine.

It seems the sky and the earth have slept
Together with the lanes;
Those far fetched dreams have evaded me
Even slept are my destinations.

Time surrenders, day surrenders,
Night surrenders;
I stare nonchalantly at the burning lights
Of the city streets wanderers.

When nemesis decides to intervene
Cosmos surrenders;
When fortune plays its flute
The last is the front runner.

I’ll keep wandering the streets
With my head held high;
To see every dark cloud with a silver lining,
A rising sun after this night.

    Evoking the ghost of many a Edith Piaf song, this confection of ennui and incipient melancholy proves to be one for the cognoscenti.
