EMPTY HALLS

=================== She was filled with the laughter of her host and invitees As her lights were lit by their hopes and dreams Life was a paradise unnoticed Till the lights went out and darkness invaded As fear over us pervaded, Hearts sunk in grief Eyes drowned in tears Deafening silence above her soared Our halls became a cemetery Lifelessness took our forms The stage hosted our ghost Singing nolstagic melodies as the birds, bees, and insects danced in our former spot The chandeliers held no more lights but darkness And the chairs were cold and lifeless Our life became miserably beautiful The world biggest prison and our homes became its cell Only that it was different It hosted families reunited in love Hoping and praying for a change Yet, Thick Cobwebs of frustrations hung around her Tears rolling against her windowpanes And our blood were graffiti written on her walls Finally we started giving up As the alien grew stronger She conquered for days, and Weeks, and months Till our eyes were red and blurry And our hopes grew old and weary But, We were stronger than that aware that we were on a stage( the world) It was a horror movie Only that we all were its characters Doctors, pastors, Babies, teenagers adults,Soldiers,bankers, scientists A Third world War fought not with guns But prayers, masks, gloves, sanitizers, healthy living and Bullets of Physical social-distancing and uncertain treatment Yet, In these we hoped for a happy dawn to refill and light our halls again
