The is no longer abstract. It has a persona and it lights up a cigarette, an interesting metaphor. Sunila verses about this ‘trusted ’ in a fresh voice, for .

My inner voice lit a cigarette

of which first seemed to suffocate

Nay it my meek senses

Warned me to stay far from termites

That slowly nibble away valuable time

Each moment is registered as slice

Obnoxious airs surrounding neurons

Vacate and leave VIBGYOR none

Life at last turns into a wasted junk

I give credit now to this trusted friend

Despite its nagging or vexing trend

Let the cigarette of inner voice

Burn and blow clouds to make the choice.
