A new day



Sitting by the window,
I stared, with my mouth ajar,
At the sky so dark
and the night so calm.
I looked down at the sleeping souls,
Perhaps dreaming about the love of their life
With their eyes shut tight
But minds on fire.
Tomorrow will be yet another day,
Like it was yesterday,
Special for some,
But devastating for others
Ofcourse, the irony here is
Like every other day
It too shall passé

  16. @ Atul : Well, actually, passe is generally used for past tense.. as in something which has already passed or in other ways outdated.. I spent half an hour searching the net to find whether it could be used for future.. and whoa I wrote it.. :P
