Give Black A Life

A faithful follower

I followed you all your life

With one swift move

My existence you denied.


Your every move is etched in my mind

Silences of your darkest hours

Speak volumes to me

And yet my advice never reaches your ears.


Neglected, battered, broken

Yet this bond of friendship

I have preserved

I no longer wish to follow you.


Leading is what interests me

For once let my shadow shine

Light the dark

Give black a life.

Nice. Perhaps, you might want to re -look at the title?

Happy Diwali!

Beautiful as always!
Which of the two came first, the poem or the pic?

Priyanka Khot said...

@ Amit: Any suggestions?

@ Azad: Chronologically, the photograph came first. But while posting, I wrote first and then began the hunt for the photograph from my stash. :-)
