Treasure Island

Udaya R. Tennakoon

Happiness Is Beyond Or Behind

Looking at each other
More difficult
To find a moment
For a gesture of pleasure
To dig a pit of life
For a conscience

Sighted experience
Once in a way brings a big burst
Working together
Attempt to pick up a fault
With a negative critic

A space of departed
In a sleepy night
Summarize the happenings
Adjust and come to closer
To have a dialogue

Inside the words
Something unmatched
Comes out and
Wear a new clothe
Looking at each other

From where that anger of revenge
Stands for to break
The moment we want to be happy
Not the word
Not the behavior
But something else
We know
We don’t know

We know that we are unmatched
We don’t know how we are matched
We find the moment after the break
We don’t find before the break

Better to go far away
Closing eyes
Imaginary life
Will secure
Than look each other

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
