A new day



Sitting by the window,
I stared, with my mouth ajar,
At the sky so dark
and the night so calm.
I looked down at the sleeping souls,
Perhaps dreaming about the love of their life
With their eyes shut tight
But minds on fire.
Tomorrow will be yet another day,
Like it was yesterday,
Special for some,
But devastating for others
Ofcourse, the irony here is
Like every other day
It too shall passé

@ annum : Lol.. Frankly, I had mentioned the white dress earlier in the poem but I had deleted those lines since I couldnt get a pic to suit that.. but by the time I got this pic, I had already made changes... :(

wow, this is great! i love the line: 'with their eyes shut tight, but minds on fire..'

Chanz said...

@ Tomz : Yeah, I know...

Thanks for dropping by... :)

Chanz said...

@ Sakshi : Absolutely.. But you have to agree that if there wouldnt have been any change, our lives wouldnt have been exciting at all..

Chanz said...

@ Atul : Well, actually, passe is generally used for past tense.. as in something which has already passed or in other ways outdated.. I spent half an hour searching the net to find whether it could be used for future.. and whoa I wrote it.. :P

Chanz said...

@ Golden Vulture : thanks :)

@ Garima : Thanks girl.. :)

@ease said...

for a change, it was neatly done.

Chanz said...

@ Tavish : The best thing to do is to let it come and then to let it go on its own.. Sometimes it is good to be a spectator too..

Chanz said...
