Akshaya Pawasker


World Of Darkness


As a purple blanket unfurls,
time comes to standstill,
with languidly waning,
golden arc upon the hill.

lengthening of shadows,
presaging sinister night,
baleful echoes of sorrow,
pervading bedimmed lights.

In the precincts of darkness,
where the living quails,
resurrects the world of dead,
like eternally sleeping snails.
.
Epitaphs gathering dust,
as the tears finally go dry.
Memories seem to rust,
as the sands of time slip by.

Lifeless bodies grinning,
rejoicing freedom of soul,
or grimacing with seering pain,
of emotions going cold.

Withering away corpse,
with remnants of only bones
Is this life after death,
verily for the sins to atone?
