(7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)


It was like a snake
Which gripped it's prey,
Trying to swallow it alive,
The pain in the mind
Writhed in tandem
To the time, never leaving
Even for a second,
Life seemed to be unbearable,
Thoughts of happiness
Seemed very distant,
Leaving memories
Of the past appearances,
With shadows of it
Dancing to the tune
Of the pain left, which the suffering
Made on the canvas
Of the forlorn mind torn
Into divisions of solitude ideas
Which ticked away in the light
Of the day gone unseen, unfelt.

Ravikiran Arakkal.
