As I come out in the darkness... the eclipse has just started. The moon is slowly dissolving into the black hollowness of the skies, I watch my inner self sinking in it too...
I realise that we are not made up of stardust or light... but of pure darkness. Around us... inside us. That self consuming emptiness, that hardly leaves our side is why we often crave for some one to be beside us... always!
" You are sounding depressing again... anything wrong?" My reflection in the pond whispers.
" No... am just watching the eclipse... like it's not eating the moon... but me... am compelled to evaluate my life... past is getting eaten up by the unknown time of darkness... and when I shall heal... I'll rise again. Just like the moon but this time not white with scars but red in blood."
" Have patience... or you'll eat up yourself." The voice sounded worried.
" May be... but this time... I shall not wait for the brightness to emerge from nowhere... I'll embrace what's in the darkness. May be that's all I have... ever to myself."
For may be the vast land of darkness has celestial wanderers many... but all are alone on their path and ever shall they remain.
I release the darkness from within to embrace it just like it needed me to do... and that's what eclipses are for... to know what your darkness does to you...and where it will take you with it. Reflections... Observations... Life...and YOU!
