Blackout

by Sanjida Shaheed

Everything
Has blacked out.

My memories,
My dreams,
My computer screen.

Yet I found
The light of my Love
In darkness.

Light
Dazzles me.
Distracts me.
Disturbs me.

In darkness
Flourishes
A secret flower
That has
A subtle fragrance.
But it is hidden.
Unseen.

Let me
Close my eyes
And immerse
In darkness.

I just need
To take
A deep breath.
And fill myself
With the sacred
Fragrance.

This is
My break
From reality.
To realize
That reality
Is broken.

This is
My time.
To tend to
My heart.
Lost, lonely
And shaken.
