Reel Of Hope - Poem by JOSEPH JOY

Memories rewinded like a reel

Failing to project good old days

Submerging the white in black,

Fortressed the rays of happiness

Reel screeched for the real,

Yet perception still seized by black.

The hope for light faded

Lids like coffin for my eyes.

Fury of breath reverberated in silence,

Still remained throb of expectation.

Darkness sang dirge for memory

Showcased respect in black attire.

A displaced tile oozed ray of hope,

Spreading shadows in brown.

Darkness stooped with fear,

Trickling down memories I cherished.
