Lost in Dark Tunnel

Yes I knew it was tough
But I desired to contend
to make it through to the end

It was all dark
I saw nothing, I saw nobody
A dark endless tunnel
my sides were invisible
was I becoming blind?
Yet I marched ahead
It shaped into a black cloud,
slowly encircling me
I wondered what to do
Panic surged through my veins
I was loosing faith
I wanted to run away
And I turned back,
To find where I forked in from

But, suddenly I saw a faint beam
it was a ray of light
for me, it was a ray of hope
Hope to get through the darkness!
I accelerated towards the light,
Regaining confidence at each step

And then I saw him,
smiling, welcoming with open arms,
As if he knew I would come through!
Soon I was in his embrace
Feeling his warmth
it was a rejoicing victory!

Now, I’ll never run away
Coz I know, if I am lost
He will be there to illuminate my path,
showing me the way out of the tunnel!

  1. A truly ingenious piece. Was just generally wondering if the “he” from the poem is imaginary or you have tracked him down. 🙂 If the latter, may I know who’s got the privilege to light up the tunnel called your life? 🙂

  2. Quite right Mr. Parikh! Somebody did manage to light up the dark tunnel (my life!).. Do you have any guess for that lucky soul? 😉

  3. Every couple should be jealous of you two.
