Treasure Island

Mallika Tripathi

(15 August / Lucknow)


Fire resembles the burning desires,
In umpteen ways,
It never let you tire
You continue greedily
To fulfil your lust
Unless you reach behind the wire.

You become a crook, a liar
Keeping aside the sermons
You celebrate to tyrannise
Often putting yourself in mire.

In anguish you hid in a byre
Mutilating, tormenting,
Executing the beings
You try to rest on a tyre.

But Alas!
The moment you defy the sire
It force you to enter into an inferno
Scalding your body, charring your soul
It puts you on the pyre.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
