Darkness to Dawn

The more I try to reach the dawn
The more darkness the night draws.
I seem to get lost endlessly
In this darkness,I never sought.
Unseen thorns prick me
Prick me where I can't get to them
I silence my screams and groans
But the pain calls forth my tears..
I bid them to stop
's the thorns were not really meant for me;
Just a sadist gift of darkness.
Tears would imply my defeat
So I must stride on and on
To reach the much awaited dawn
Defeating all out to defeat me
Defeating even my tears
In my quest for Dawn...
"Dawn,all this for you,
'Cos I Love You!!!"

Hi Meenakshi,
You Should read Sleeping Beauties by Yanusari Kawabatha.
May your sleepless nights be filled with more poetic thoughts
