Dementia - Poem by subodh pandey

A man stands at window, watches a tree
thrusting its outline in the sunbeams
The sunrays roll down the leaves,
in all splendour.
He strives long to turn out
a leaf out of the gone by
agonisingly close the image of his
memories shatters again and again
within him
He stills his hands on a parapet,
lighted by daylight.

    The thought is clear, however, I am a different generation. I grew up to 15 age without a doctor, so I learned to find people who explains the sicknesses differently then a doctor. In this case the dementia comes when someone wants to forget some bad memory of his life, so he looses all, because do not want to face the world with what he did. The poem is well written.
