Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


A Blind Woman's One Night Stand


She let her spectacular palms
Navigate the unknown visage
What fate imposed and choice claimed
Where love was a casualty
Subjugated by the brilliance of lust

She could feel his palms undress her
As she felt the blaze of the firing furnace
Her ascent to mortality
In her descent to the flesh
Tingles of spasms infected every coir
As her hedonistic nakedness was relegated
To a mere bystander, by the heralding feel of touch

The voluminous tide flowed in
Ebbing momentarily but rising monumentally
Crashing against her body
A vessel that leapt from her shore
To wade in to the waters of a strange world

She could feel the energy
Of the devouring waves, of her legendary titan
A blind woman, devoid of a retinal impression
Gifted with the godly sentience of touch
A raft in the ocean, set adrift
Where water crashes in to every splinter
Of plucked wood, macerated in to bliss

Oh how poetic is lust
A blind woman granted the gift
Of yearning's apical sacrament
Perhaps just a one night stand
Yet perpetuating a trail, for memory's grail

She dressed herself and walked away
Her palms carrying his eternal impression
A student of Braille in the universal pidgin of love
Walking from her first sunrise
With a promise to return

But to a different horizon........

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
