Dreams Are Safer Now

by Dharmendra Kumar


No. He isn't weak. He is strong. He is strong to let him get away with it.

was wide awake,

​ let him in and steal it,

​wintnessed it when he shattered it into pieces,

​was wide awake,

let him slog away,

picked till the last piece,

put it back in eyes,

​was wide awake,

​shut 'em tight checking any fall,

​ sang oneself a lullaby,

​slept like an exhausted queen,

​no more ,was wide awake,

​for it now lied in pieces ,

​in pieces but safer,

​now sleeps .......
