Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Emancipation of the Sovereign Heart


Mirages enumerate the vulnerable mind
Caged by the trappings of mortality
As one seeks the opulence of the heart
The shrouded mystery of an unconditional love
As knights in shining armor stroll in
With a clamor in step and a jingle of the heart
With blades of amor and shields of honor
Yet victim to corrosion in the hallways of time
Rusting to the moisture of the straying heart
To tides of lust that knock on your shores
As the sand castles of the heart fade like wilting flowers
To leave behind the legacy of hurt's procreation
The true labor of love, in your quest for an oasis of the heart
As the bountiful evergreen metamorphoses to a green mile
A caged abyss, as the fickle heart longs for liberation
To re-embrace your birth rite, to the open arms of solitude
To prosper in the great wide open, providence's masterpiece
Like the regal sun or the divine moon
Like an indomitable elephant or a hunting lioness
To flourish in the emancipation of a sovereign heart
