A scattered smile

A scattered smile 
A Poem by Faridoon Shahryar

Fear tapped on my shoulders
A sinister stare followed
Snowstorm knocked 
On my window
An unnerving restlessness,
Parched throat 
Quivered in the cold 
The night was 
Darker and longer 
Than the usual,
I fiddled with my mobile 
Diverting attention
Hesitantly I decided 
To look beyond 
The curtains of doubt 
The mountains 
Gleamed through the clouds
A scattered smile
Winked at the sunlight
It was time to 
Make the tea
Dip the biscuits 
Hit the gym
Plan the breakfast
Even the dreams are chirping 
Time to deceive 
Ghosts of the mind 
Arrange the bed properly
And just open 
The door of freedom 
To walk out 
Into the sun.
