By Neel Anil Panicker

This darkness brings with it a mélange of horrific images

peace is the villain that plays hide and seek with me through ages

the harshness of the present leaves me simply all too aghast

torturous are these years that have bound me in a cast

wonder if I can reprise sepia tinged memories of years past

when laughter and smiles ensured my days were a sheer blast

bewitching were those nights that were spread so vast

when I gazed at the ships that sailed by at full mast

can’t erase such memories of enchanting days yore

I yearn for a time when my life’s float once more turns ashore.
