Enter the Light – A Takhayyal poem



Let the light seep in,
Softly treading on my skin,
Steps gently falling,
Slowly awakening my numb limbs

My eyes begin to see colours:
Of gold and green,
Blue and orange

Warmth,
A feeling long buried, forgotten
Colour
Streams through my being,
Singing a melody,
Washing away the greyness
Of my world.

Purple, pink and blue
Bathe me, bathe me,
Lights of every hue,
Awaken my soul
Within the crumbling walls
Of this human shell,
Replenish this drained body

Green, orange, lemon, peach
Revive my senses
Encase me in your colourful warmth
Make me get up
And breathe once again.
