Till the unfailing Dawn..

The darkness lithely obeyed,

Abating to the globe tipped candle,

The murky spots still existing,

I lit several, stretching every inch,

Reaching every corner,

Swiveling them about the room,

Yet the spots remained,

The flame shadows,

That I tried to smear bright,

In vain,

In madness,

In ineptitude,

In mellowness,

I continued to work finally, in the dull luminence,

Till, dawn unfailingly broke..

I remember the story,

Each time I try,

To paint sorrow bright…..
