Treasure Island


(15th sept / kannur)


Playing cards?

Was that me?

Shuffling through many of them

Definitely I was one among them

He dropped equal ones…….

Complemented one another

There was definitely a quest for me

The never ending quest

A face of contentment when I was in his hands

Nervousnes when I was with the other

Again the face lights up

When I am back with him

They dropped their cards

When right matches popped up

Till at last I remained

He lifted me up

With gratification and satisfaction

Cause success was his

As long as I stood with him

The game was over and he walked back home

And I went off to sleep

With the contentment that I made him happy

Till I woke up in the morning

& looked into the mirror

I realized I have a joker face

You need me in the game

& its easy to win with me

Still I was a joker

Joker in the game

Choice was mine

I could leave or continue

But I decided to wrap up

The joker face

Cause I wanted to be in the game

In the game of love n life……..! !

You can scoff n scorn

Or poke fun at
cause jokers are for pleasure

Whether they laugh or cry within

    but well, for me there are no jokers.....
    they just are ill fated ones..but they're not jokers....there're reasons why they fail...but they're not jokers....they have their own role...but they're not jokers.....hehe (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
