My city

by Punam
site: https://paeansunpluggedblog.wordpress.com/

As haze envelopes my city at night
its ugly scars diminish and disappear
the luminosity of moonlight shines not
on traces of death of morality
nor on decaying principles
fluttering like flimsy curtains
my city looks sinisterly ethereal
as blood quietly seeps in the atmosphere
the stifled cries of truth remain unheard
trampled by night traffic
sordid secrets sink deep in its bosom
somewhere a sitar cries soulfully
and the hapless moon buries her face in shame.
