Treasure Island

Masharia kanyari

(Kenya -East Africa)

Answer this

Tell me why.
Of the many lips I've kissed,
It is your pair I vividly remember,
Despite how many miles I walk,
You seem to haunt my every step,
Your allure is always my neighbour,

Tell me why.
Of all the scents I know,
Its yours that my heart most longeth for,
A scent so profound- deep...
Only comparable to a million roses

Tell me why.
I don't care who reads this,
Not even my friends,
Who will think I'm weak,
Stupid, in love or smitten,

Tell me why.
I woke up a little upset,
That this chic beside me,
Is not you,
Despite our yester-night's indulgence,

Tell me why.
I sent this,
Knowing all so well,
That should your man see it,
He shall be violently offended...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
