Treasure Island

anasuya balla

do you know?

do you know
that i see you
be in purple haze
that mists around perfect
smiles that melt and molt?

do you know
that i see you
in levels too high
and in gold more grand
than you can know yourself?

do you know
that i see you
in places that we have
been happy: blissful even
all coloured in candy pink?

do you want to know
that i might wonder anew:
when the gold pales,
and sometimes also:
when the haze clears and the candy stales,

if it is really you i see
or if it was a perfect i wanted it to be.

Poem of the Day

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 »
