Poetry 2016 Longlist, Anila Mathew

Nostalgia

Rose is the hue
Gaiety, merriment, contentment, aspirations,
Alter egos discovered
Promises recovered
From the recesses of time
Some broken, some not
Bathed in glory
Of passed time and youth
Sepia tinged pictures of joy
Piercing sadness
As reality beckons into a cold grip
Memories are flushed away
