Eclipse by Hafsa Mumtaz

Hafsa Mumtaz | November 25th, 2021 | a poem a day challenge | No Comments


the reverberance of my thoughts grows from
moribund ebon to sanguine tides in my veins to
ashen grey of meaninglessness of life to
clamping teal blue of monachopsis & chaos to
blinding white of nothingness & numbness
words blur & quiver like the vista in epilepsy
the strings of hope fumble for cadence & gravity
self-effacing seems the key in amidst the squalls
but the flapping sails insist on self-embracing
the eclipse of acumen darkens the vicinity
the sharpening shadow conflates lies & truths
into a single stencil of a key so you dive into
the haunting whirl of uncertainty & obscurity
wavering on the paper-thin edge of nonplus
flummoxing crystal lucidity with deterring complexity
tinkering with thoughts, feelings, & contexts
clarity swings on the brink of acquiescence
& sanity shudders as fancy pirouettes into a void
