Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

i am in love

What was this O! Lord; that my lips refrained to speak; sung mystical tunes instead while walking on the streets?
What was this O! Lord; that my fingers incorrigibly refused to write; drawing incoherent shapes in the mud instead?
What was this O! Lord; that my eyes stared wildly in open space; instead of shutting down under the blistering sun?
What was this O! Lord; that I forgot to have my afternoon meals; when normally I was the first one to finish food in our family?
What was this O! Lord; that I dreamt even while signing checks; entering in mind boggling amounts; that eventually left me bankrupt?
What was this O! Lord; that I erupted out in fantasies of my childhood; when infact I was supposed to give a lecture on Business Economics?
What was this O! Lord; that I crashed head on with the waiter carrying a tray full of pastry; when infact I had already sighted him from miles apart?
What was this O! Lord; that I presumed it to be brilliant afternoon; when actually it was just a little before midnight?
What was this O! Lord; that I barged my car right into the hotel coffee shop; instead of parking it outside and walking down the distance?
What was this O! Lord; that I cut my hands severely while chopping vegetables; when infact there was superb synchronization between the knife and my little finger?
What was this O! Lord; that I gasped for breath like a dead man; when infact I had just arisen from bed after infinite hours of blissful sleep?
What was this O! Lord; that a sheepish grin encompassed the contours of my face all day; when usually I was extremely stringent in my behavior?
What was this O! Lord; that I reached the ghastly graveyard; when infact I was headed for attending prayers in church?
What was this O! Lord; that I embraced an old woman on the verge of relinquishing breath; cognizing her to be the girl of my dreams?
What was this O! Lord; that the blood in my veins ran at electric speeds; inspite of my medical practitioner ruling out any chance of blood pressure?
And what was this O! Lord; that my heart palpitated at a million beats per minute; although she resided continent's apart?
You know what; your guess is as good as mine; and there was simply no rhyme or reason to defy it; for I think that the inevitable has happened; I was struck by the same fever as millions of my kind are struck every day; O! Yes I THINK I AM IN LOVE.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
