Treasure Island

Shagun Khera

(09 June 1984 / Delhi)

A little more incomplete! ! ! !

Far cries from beyond fringes of reach...
a distance built and ornated with blood and endeavour..
a walk glorified with a craving triumph...
a misery trampled under the weight of scorching radiance
a smirk beholding a prejudice
and the autumn leaves sweep the feet....
dreams served on a golden platter...
pampered and blessed....
you drifted away slyly...
into a void carved by you.....
trampling the desire...those tear laden pleads...
i remember the day...
when you made me feel...a lil more incomplete...

parched like a graveyard in the scorching sun...
and a decaying soul...searching for peace...
a body...carried upon....denial for retreat...
and when the sun splashes orange on the blue stretch of the vast...
the perforated black sheet flaunts diamonds like an embellished whore...
succumbing every hour to the metered reflection of son of the light...
those dreams that we saw...
which you left behind..
which i behold..
like a story untold....
like a cancer which breeds right into my soul...
like a rust that is eating my senses.
like a curse turning me to stone...
like a plague...and no where to run..
like you.....laying besides me.., even when i'm gone...
and i breathe..
upon a repulsion of reality...
an undeserving creed...
like a hopeless wish..
you make me feel...a lil more incomplete.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
