Tube Light- her 4 am friend

The sun brought along schedules and spreadsheets
Mundane as they may sound, with these, her fears she cheats.

Kept her mind occupied, her fears at bay.
Enthusiasm of meeting people, sometimes real, mostly fake, got her through the day.

Cometh the midnight, she closes her eyes tight.
No escaping the frightful fears, to the ceiling and beyond, it’s a lonely night.

Mind at unrest, body tossing around in the bed.
The possibility of this turning into a permanent scenario, she lay scared.

Rain slashing against the pane, freakish sounds abuzz, her eyes open wide
She curls up on the right, with no one to hold on the other side.

This thought of ending up alone played like a horror scene.
Few minutes, sometimes longer, never does it go unseen.

Switched on the button, the old tube light in her room shone.
Giving Ally, the comfort and familiarity of the known.

Falls into a slumber finally, in the company of the light
Its effect was dim, but it gave her a sense of might.

The girl who is loved by all…..

With a benevolent and easy to get along with nature, she is liked by everyone.
An absolute sweetheart, she loves being in the company of people,discovering new ways to have fun.
With yes as an answer for almost everything others ask, she is the most adjusting one.
Like everyone she also gets discouraged by down turns but to show others a ray of hope is her forte.
Gradually she even learned to find a silver lining for herself and pave a way.
She finds comfort and contentment in knowing that people around her are happy and gay.
Donning up like a pretty damsel is not something she pays attention to, though she manages to turn a few heads her way.
She s never the centre of attraction or never the one to be spoken about but all come to her to share their problems and she listens all day.
A midst all the goodness in her life there’s just one minor fault.
In spite of her earnest efforts she s alone more often than not.
