The Scare Revisited - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair
As I flee from the scare of the mainland
And search for an Utopian solace down in a pool
My heart swells and smells like frosted blood.
Even as I begin to rejoice at my escape
The pool turns shallow and shallower
And I remain afloat its thin surface.
The scare is still there,
But I return to the life on the mainland
Even as many an eyebrows are raised
And new frowns adore the faces familiar.
Down within my heart melting in the heat
I search for a thought more prudent and sound
And I see someone shaking my hands for once!
It is the scare now befriending me
And I shall now travel with him by me and
Even then I say, 'He is there'.
