My Greed and Oblivion

The dark shadows, giving me a glittering ray of hope
Hypnotizing my soul, attracted me to the place I didn’t belong
I didn’t have any notion what strings pulled me to the spirit
Though I know very well; those who are blind, can not feel any light
Still with my arms opened wide, I embraced the unwelcome sight
Cautiously I realized the spirits didn’t want any part of me
They turned their backs on me and I walked away
Darkness engraved by obscurity, still the darkness prevails
Again my footsteps traced their way back and I confronted the spirit again
But only this time found my self eye in eye with the twilight
Realizing one more time; winds were at cross with me, pushing me away
But for the one lost in the sardonic skies, this was merely a test of time
Like an infant looking affectionately at the sight of the mother
Infant was I, mother was the twilight
As undertaken by some cast of a magician’s spell
I wandered aimlessly in the fields of my chaotic desires
Clueless, hovering, pleading the spirit for the unfolded blindness
But for some blind; darkness or light, both are of same kind
And I returned back, sent unanswered but prevailed my greed and oblivion

Artist's Description

This is for real, the creepy feeling came over me while I visited Muree; a beautiful hill station and main leisure attraction of Pakistan. There is this old church in the main center of the small town. It was a leisure trip with a trio of friends on 18th/19th of December’ 04 which is like winter at its peak and then a hillstation! During the night time while lurking aimlessly with long walks on the deserted cold streets; of now where i climbed to the path leading the church. First it was a group of friends; we visited it together. It was like 1am. Then the friends decided to move on with the walk so i went along as well. But don’t know why the sight attracted me so much that i left the friends trio and again visited the church; and just sat there till the breakdown of dawn. I still can’t figure it out what happened to me that time … can’t!
