The Darkness

a reflection on parenting during Covid-19 Pandemic

Let everything happen to you/ beauty and terror/ just keep going/ no feeling is final.

another day and few more numbers
I am anxious he said
I told him to close his eyes and dream
while my fingers typed on
another poem to kill the darkness

this was the conversation before he slept, parenting has been tough since past few months, each night he sleeps after reading the news as if something will change and I am waiting for the day when things will really change.
stay safe in your part of the world
take care friends.

with too many things in my head i write to sort it all till the sky is empty and there’s no poetry
