Reflections - Poem by Avinash Nair

I wasn’t me anymore,
Why I wonder?
When I woke up from my
Deepest slumber.
What changed me?
Or induced me
To change,
I did ponder.
I looked around
I looked at me
In the mirror, my salient
Feature staring back
Erie, subtle, and silent.
I could see there was a change
A distinct difference. Strange!
I thought, as I sought
For an answer.
My eyes cold filled with terror
My voice old broken with tremor
My eyes drooped, my smile taken
My soul trooped, my dignity shaken.
I was different,
To myself, indifferent!
So to myself I asked
“Between the ages passed,
The times spent,
What have I gained
Except for old age? ”


Astounding silence echoed
Until I heard a weird sound
It was a laughter,
A dreary laughter.
And I wary of the sound
Did look around
But there was only me,
My reflection showed,
And what did I see
I saw my image
Laughing…
