This silly night

a poem by Deepa Dash

These stupid memories never let me go,
Neither anywhere else nor even sleep,
Trying to close my eyes- they always peep…
Slumber chain has bound me up.

Some fond memories bring light,
A few bonds that hold me tight.
The smiles, the tears…
Of the girlhood years…

This stupid silly night
Makes my memory fight.
Jump and rush in my memory lane
And the bad days that bought me pain…
