The Sky Takes Over


Abecedarian Poem: The Sky Takes Over


Alas, the day is over

But the night takes over

Catching stars was always my dream

‘Dreams can come true,’ my mother used to say

Even though I know it’s impossible

Fate always helped me

Games I never used to be good at

However, I always wanted to do the impossible

If I had the courage to do it, I would

Just believing in myself could give me a head start

Kenny, my friend, went to Mars and came back

‘Lame,’ he said I was, if I let this offer pass

Money wasn’t the issue as my parents were well-off

Now I could say either yes or no; Yes, it was

‘Off to outer space,’ I now was

Peeking from there is a problem, just to be clear

Quartz clocks I won’t need, as there is no time in space

Rise of the sun and the moon won’t be visible

Saying this sentence just feels weird

Toughness, courage and loyalty are the qualities I need

Ultra violet rays of the Sun won’t be a problem

‘Vikhyat’, my name will appear in the papers

World, goodbye to you

Xian in china was still visible

Yeah, my dream came true

Zenith, just staring at it, I had imagined everything!


Vikhyat Bhasin
