Blue Solitude

The night lingers, yawning, 
Stretching its limbs across the sky;
It lies there so silently, so languidly
As if awaiting the early rays of morning
To come by- I wake-
I wake to the sounds of silence and 
Like the night, I linger in my bed.
Nothing appears to me but darkness-
Darkness that twirls a million times
‘round my head.

Upon these cold, air-conditioned tiles
I find myself walking so slowly, almost
Crawling into the darkness. 
I hear my head talking- talking so loudly
Even amidst all this silence.
How am I to know- how am I to know
Whether or not this whole night is but a dream?
A mere dream so trivial that it almost wakes me
And makes me part of its darkness.

From my window I see the night-
I see it lying there, painting all other 
Windows with dark threads of sleep.
I even feel my eyes getting heavier,
Yet something- 
Something endeavors to keep
Me awake through this night.
I continue to stare outside my window
Still listening to the haze of my thoughts.
How come all that is should be? And
Why are you, you and simply not me?
It seems that this darkness is not willing
To part away from me.

( Pause)

A voice- a voice recites its calmness through
This night and slowly approaches my
Window. I see it- I see it coming
My way, touching 
My window,  stroking the
Darkness away. 
My thoughts once again begin to bellow 
And say:
How come all that is should be?
And why are you, you and simply not me? 

I succumb to the voice, regardless-
And deem my thoughts forgone. 
On my window it slides- the voice- 
Almost so artistically drawn. I stand upright,
Facing away from the night which has now
 Become withdrawn- 
I slowly kneel down, whispering prayers to
The cold-tiled ground
And finally it comes- Dawn.

Inspired by a Al Fajr Prayer which is the Arabic for Dawn.

    A delighted poem sad and very heart felt write. (( Farah I have not had the honor of telling you thanks for choosing my poem for your contest. It was very shocking, I was just messing with the entry. The original SLAM describes real pain for this world. I had fun knowing I came in second. That was awesome. Have yourself a nice and wonderful day)),..p.d.

    i've read and re-read this,and the depths of thoughts expressed is simply amazing...it's challenging to find those words which convey the meaning of the souls whispering...funny about the darkness of night,and the awaiting of a new dawn,it seems at times,the quiet stillness can also have it's comforts...only a well composed mind can find that kind of peace.....always , jay

    Smile ~ This is one of the most Amazing poems I have ever read; so much so that, I had to read through it a few times, just to fully appreciate its complete "Beauty" ~ "You Astonish Me; 'You Always' Have, 'Dear Precious Farah Chamma!!!'" ~ And I hope that life has been treating "Your Beautiful Heart & Soul Dear," so very absolutely perfectly because, "Your Brightness" has Always seemed to deserve it so it seems ~ ....Cont:)

    There is something of a mystical quality to this write, Farah. It's almost as if she really needed dawn to arrive and disspell the fears that accompany the night. Very intriguing poem! Love, Carolyn

    Thank you for sharing your poetry Farah. Poets here offer such diverse writings and to me it is a pleasure to read each and everyone. I will not be here at the Soup to read from Friday through Monday. I hope you will find mountains of inspiration during that time. I look forward to reading when I return. Have a great weekend. Love, Carol

    I really enjoyed reading this poem a lot. Superb writing with unique strength. I probably lost myself from what you were trying to convey. Personally, I had strange thoughts about dreams within dreams....wondering what is dream and what is reality; which way out of where and why? lol--fantastic poem~Chris
