Unraveling the Night

That strange stormy night,
All set to make me fright
Eyes all on me
Exasperating and terrifying,
Bringing me on my knee!
But I chose to run,
Run away from all of you
To a place where I could be free from all the woes
Place full of freedom
Place without anyone dumb
Place where I can succumb on happiness
Place where it will let me be
Place where I could just breathe
Place where I could make a choice
Dreams taking dimensions, ready to flee!

I wish you could come along,
I don’t mind even if you don’t
It is always better to have you by my side
Nevertheless, it’s a lonely world, and I should learn to confide!

You know I always loved wearing skirts
But you never let me don one
They’ll stare, and it won’t look nice
You should know it all, now don’t spoil all the fun!

I just want to run, run and run so far
Oblivious to its ways and nescient to its scars
So what it will hurt,
So what if it makes me fall
It will only teach me something
And make an undaunted soul.

O this night,
This scary, scary night
I dare you come again
And I will welcome you with all the might!
