Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


A Pauper's Vow


For love is.......

An abstract tapestry
Meticulously woven by two souls
Entwined in perpetual cotton

With each thread narrating
Her own mystical story
Of kisses in fluidity
Of promenades in autumn
Of conversation bereft of speech

Treading towards
Our own unique horizon
Compass-less
Yet destiny-bound

Adventures and escapades
Routines and idiosyncrasies
Surrenders and triumphs
Sorrow entwined with melancholy
All interlaced in to one fabric

I am no prince charming
I am no knight in shining armor
I am no princely frog
Nor am I a magical beast

I am just a man
With our tapestry as my cape
Requesting your hand
For a few more miles
In our odyssey to serendipity

Basking
In love and hope
In lust and sin
In wonder and awe
Until we saturate our senses

When every earthly deed
Feels like deja-vu
Except...

The taste of your heavenly lips

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
