For a man in love, this day and night simply appear as an interplay between two colours; Black and white.

I quote Urdu Poet Mir Taqi Mir.....

Yaan ke safed o siyaah mein hum-ko
Dakhal Jo hai so itnaa hai,
Raat ko ro ro subah kiyaa
Ya Din ko jyon tyon shaam kiyaa..
(Mir Taqi Mir)

My simple English rendering would be ...

In the interaction of black and white,
My intervention is just this much;
In tears, I drag the night to morning
And somehow, pull down this day to night..
