The Knight Against The Night

There, in the darkness, 

you can see her standing figure. 

The struggle to keep her pieces together

is clearly and visibly evident.


She likes the darkness. 

One doesn’t need to be in the light

and push oneself to perform all the time

or keep fighting the wrong standards.


She cannot even play along

in the game of pretence anymore.

She cannot forcibly show

that she is ‘calm and composed’.


Just like all the other genders, 

she, too, is labeled 

after being judged on various parameters.

Her face reflects how much is she tired.
