Treasure Island

Arti Chopra

(16 Nov 1953 / Jammu)

Betrayal


Our glances clashed,
Met.......
A single tear
Pearl like,
Wet.......
Rolled bravely down
My lonely cheek,
Your eyes darted away
Guilt ridden
So weak
Your face emotionless,
My eyes, a caress,
A single nerve twitched,
Like a dark poem
Across a page bewitched,
And I looked,
For a sign
On the blank canvas of your
Lying face,
Trying to see a lamp of hope
Light up
Those vacant eyes
Which I thought were mine
Eyes from which I had drunk deep
Like a glass of heady wine
But to no avail
You turned
Eyes downcast
And walked right away
From the empty spaces
Inside my reproachful
Bleeding heart

    It's a beautiful poem!
    'A single nerve twitched,
    Like a dark poem
    Across a page bewitched, ' - Is a beautiful expression!
    'And I looked,
    For a sign
    On the blank canvas of your
    Lying face,
    Trying to see a lamp of hope
    Light up
    Those vacant eyes
    Which I thought were mine' - Very poetic indeed!

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
