Autumn

by Manikya

Tangled web of self deceit;
Dichotomy of living while life stands still
Shivering in the shy shadows of sudden light

You surrender to watch through strangers’ eyes
The beginnings end as life does spill
Like raindrops splattered on uneven ground
The crash of surf against resolute rocks
And words make stories you no longer know

Puerile buds that know only shade
Long to hold sunshine in timeless palms
Not knowing, yet, the sun rises only to set;
Yet, the fading flower discerns well
Dichotomies, deceits, the doors of death
And searching no more for light seeped through
Endures the wait of final release.
