“Friends with Darkness (The Sonnet)

Most dread the very notion of dark,
Darkness strikes horror in their heart.
Yet darkness gives me a sense of calm,
I feel quite at home when in dark.
Darkness makes me alive,
Darkness gives me flight.
Darkness makes me aware,
Of the tiniest glint of light.
Darkness electrifies my dampened veins,
It pours back my nerves with vigor.
Just when everything seems to fall apart,
The mind awakens with unforeseen power.
So, never try to keep darkness at bay.
Once befriended darkness takes you a long way.”
Abhijit Naskar, Divane Dynamite: Only truth in the cosmos is love

“All oblivious to my dreams, and to my state of struggle:
some would greet me, smiling at me.
But some laughed the hardest, laughing at me.
Some would express pity,
while some expressed sympathy.
Some would pretend that I wasn't even there.
And those who ignored me equalled my presence to that of the debris.”
