I had no light

It was all so dark

No light in the heart, the soul long gone

But I still had myself

So I set aflame the dreams

I set aflame the desires

I set aflame our pictures

I set aflame our letters

I set aflame the plane tickets

I set aflame all poems

I set aflame all paintings

I set aflame my pen

I set aflame my colors

I set aflame my heart

I set aflame my love

 

And that should be enough light

Just enough for Diwali

The festival of lights…

That should be enough light

For my dark heart – that I set to fire

This festival of lights!
