Lost in reverie

Shalini Menon

A place to be
when all fails
A stairway to heaven
A cosy nest to thrive
as life shatters under its own weight.
A lovely hue in purple, gold and pink
Everlasting joy in infallibility,
The Perpetual dewy mornings,
the chirpy chats
The glow of love and the taut hugs,
All so enduringly true
Fear or loss nowhere near
These are but momentous truths
entwined in hope
Yet so surreal.
Here Peace is a fixture,
needs nothing but a thought
To quick start the hazy world
A bolt for freedom
into the laps of inebriation is all I seek
Don’t wake me up please !
Let me be ...
Soaked in this elixir of rhapsody
