The unknown shadow!


unknown shadow poem by saurabh chawla

Looking in the mirror so close
I see a reflection of the unknown
Leave me wondering always
Whether I am awake or in a doze

Like the moon eclipses the sun
It takes upon me when I am weak
Slowly transforming me to a state
That of a devil or some god in heaven

Losing control is the main factor
That takes away the natural prowess
Within me lives someone I guess
Willing to come up from hideout as a benefactor   

Persevering to this bizarre chain of events
I fear of losing the one I have most important
Sometimes I feel dejected, sometimes depraved
But this unknown shadow of a stranger prevents!

She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her.
