THE DARK NIGHT RISES
By Neel Anil Panicker
Thoughts entangled in the web of time
Mirror fractious images from my fractured mind.
Entrapped memories flutter around
Unshackling the burden of living.
Tonight I shall dive into the cesspool of the dead
Hoping to retrieve the dying embers of my soddened past.
The unknown future beckons as only it can
Do I have your permission to bury you alive?
