In a rainy evening

Here I am seated still; listening to the song of the rain. acrobat Swallows dance in the grey sky; the heavy black leaves, laments quietly. “Chagall” painted in blue. It’s the colour of “Love” You said, with “Starry night blue” eyes turning my sky in to blue, “blue” is eternal, I thought. Ignoring, the blue sky turning to peachy orange suddenly, bursting like a symphony, appeared vivid shades, “ the colour of hate”, “the colour of lust” “the colour of fear”, all strong brush strokes, painting the rough edges of life. yet here I am, seated still, listening to the waves of “tireless blue ocean” inside me, holding tight to the fragments of life, until the reality dawn on me, knocks my heart and tell me “loneliness” was named after you”.
