Nightmare

Identities dissolved in the liquid darkness
Mists, unidentified faces lurked
Silent screams quivered on closed lips
And a multitude of unanswered
Questions.

Blots of light sailed in the drab atmosphere
Obscurity wove a hundred webs of fear
Each sinew got entangled, throbs between
Fear and bravery, occurred in
Oscillation.

Hands moved in search of light
Threads lost in murkiness
In paroxysm of pain, eyes rolled
Wildly back and forth in search of
Causation.

In subtle mix of reality and illusion
The brain was mesmerized
In myriad of phantom shadows
By dream reality, lost beyond
Discretion.

Truth became elusive
A scimitar suspended in the air
A star in the wee hours of morning
In the company of the orb of night rose to
Salvation.

    Great and is enough
    sufficient to move
    the inner world
    of every soul in his action
    and images intense
