Death of Light

A spectacular and historic event
Was to happen in sky
Once in a life time display
That’d affect our lives in every way.

Human race is far more advanced
To be concerned with such a change
Astrophysicists and scientists say.

Masses was anxiously waiting
For sky to turn into stage
A free show, memorable event
They were lucky to witness in their lifetime.

The long wait ended and the night arrived
Millions of people rushed outside
To witness the exhibit in person.

When the night fell
Sky tarnished with thick clouds
Chatter hovered
Disappointed spectators were promised
The unfortunate haze
Would not ruin their pleasant evening
A calm breeze caressed the scene
Swept the massive clouds
Before the dazzled eyes of audience
The infinite stage was set on a dark backdrop
Cheerful spectators came to their feet
An enthusiastic applaud in stupor
When the shiny crescent finally appeared
In the heavens before their eyes.

The solo performer of the night
Innocently coiled her dazzling torso
Like a timid young celibate given
To an intoxicated beast on her wedding night
The fragile virgin looked pale, aloof on spotlight
The light was shimmering through her sad eyes
The rowdy audience cheered the performer
So the main attraction started
The shimmery crescent silent on stage
Under the gaze of millions
Performed her last act as captivating as expected
When she quietly wept in solitude
Glittering tears fell from heaven
Shattered crystals of chandelier
Rained over the enchanted sky
A wisp of her tantalizing hair,
Sparkles of silver bulbs
Trickled down onto earth
She recited her own elegy
With every twinkle of tear
Her fragile torso shrunk thinner
Minutes later she fell apart
Her radiant particles
Glowing pieces vanished in universe
When her elegant beauty
Withered into a murky void
World plunged deeper into abyss
The audience gave a standing ovation
For her grand finale in sky
Masses of earth morphed
Into long ominous shadows
Stretched across universe
The murmuring phantoms
Wickedly wiggled through mazes
To lurk in their dark dwellings
With a faded reminiscence of
The beauty and the light.
