Treasure Island

Vishal Sharma

(10th july 1996/Samastipur (Bihar) / India)

Faint of Heart


Beneath your cool airy sheets
I hear your heart racing
Trying to catch my breathe
Glowing skin and damp hair
You hold the forty-five to my temple
"du wirst es bereuen" I whisper in a
easeful tone
smirk upon my corpulent lips and
cadaverous skin..
Convincing enough to make you
oscillate
A single tear rolls down your dewy
cheek
Your loving gaze becomes a blank
soulless stare

    Perhaps you meant Breath in that third line? Cadaverous skin- very nice word use. Nice tones here. Cheers! (Report) Reply

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,
