Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

I can’t withstand while your straight looking eyes torture me!


O’ my love!
Even if the sharp sword kills me by piercing,
while falling down, I shalln’t die by touching
the sand with the chest!

But,
While the lids of your straight looking eyes
like one thousand swords torture my eyes,
I can’t withstand!
