The ticking sound of the clock went sharper and deeper,
As the moon shone brighter, and night went darker.
Thoughts engulfed me of the past, present and future,
As the whistle of the train went louder, and crickets were busy in their chatter.
Night seemed longer, and a sense of emptiness was seen larger,
As the noisy streets, the chirpy birds,and local gossips had gone quieter.
Memories of anxieties and depressions hit harder, and they kept chasing the sleep farther,
As night followed eyes felt heavier and duller.
Mind was at a constant conflict with heart,
Untill the sleep fairies stole all the thoughts, and a new dawn had emerged.
And life continues😊
