Lockdown Blues

It used to be called the summer blues

Now though, it’s those lockdown blues

Caught up in these four walls

Memories captivated in just a few scrolls!

Love, passion, pain and boredom

Mingled emotions running high in random

Discoveries made with every secret revealed

Eyes opened, outside all being closed!

You were my lockdown love

Passing our time with every line

Chats on free, images to a pixelated fine

Churning thoughts to a crescendo, all mine!

Oh! Bring back those days and those bright nights

To turn on these dulled out,

“back to normal” lights!
