He was roaming around listlessly,
Waiting for the night to set in
Just as the last rays on sun vanished and the night set in
There was a flick and she came into sight
She was caged, but there was a glow around her
As he went closer he could feel her warmth
She seemed to smile while dancing in the cage
But he was intrigued of how could there be happiness in confinement.
He tried to get her attention but was dazed by her radiance
She looked at him and he realized she had sadness in her eyes
He tried getting closer, but she kept pushing him away
She seemed to beg, asking him to leave
But he was captivated by love, and ignored her pleas
He flew higher and higher till he could almost touch her
And then there was a burst, a crackle and he fell
Lifeless, but with a smile on his face
He had managed to hold her and profess his love
She continued dancing in the night with sorrow in her heart
Another intrigued moth had died in her arms.

You built up the suspense well, Neha. I actually read it again to see if I missed it, but no. Nothing gave any clue of what was coming!
Glad to land on your blog during this challenge.
