In my picture


On way to capture

A magical moment

In the layers of black and white,

Stuck it with though

In regular alternation

A smile of sadness and euphoria,

Still retains a poise

In the world of

Wide eyed laughter and calmness,

Step by step in the

Narrow sense of being

One-eyed and desperately negative,

Hit be the piercing rays,

Comedy and tragedy

Side by side, one move after another,

Is it only natural to hide?

Everything we see and instantly forget,

True to form a mesh

Fight with the shadow

Resign and drop out at the treacherous end.
