Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

i wanted to die with you


I WANTED TO dance with you on the sun; with its dazzling rays profoundly basking us all day,
I wanted to walk with you through the deserts; with the golden sands weaving enchanting trails of our footsteps,
I wanted to sit with you on the placid green meadows; incessantly admiring the rustic cattle; scores of flocculent mountain sheep,
I wanted to gallivant with you on bare horseback; with your mesmerizing hair rampantly blowing with the air and tingling my cheek,
I wanted to leisurely philander with you across the amusement park; taking an exhilarating spin with you on the roller coaster train,
I wanted to raucously play with you in the swirling ocean; splashing infinite droplets of water on your face,
I wanted to talk with you on telephone for marathon hours of time; solely infatuated by the melodious cadence in your voice,
I wanted to sleep with you on the open terrace; with the tenacious rays of moon infiltrating into our eyes,
I wanted to eat with you in your plate; feeding you delectable morsels of food with my very own hands,
I wanted to stand with you on the summit of the monumental building; drearily sight the world as an obfuscated blur some thousand feet below,
I wanted to see all movies on the silver screen with you; entwining my palms with your compassionate fingers,
I wanted to entangle my wrists with yours; giving you the pleasure of easily defeating me,
I wanted to kneel beside your frail persona when you were ill; scrupulously feeding you your medicines despite your vehement resistance,
I wanted to bathe with you in the Jungle River; with frothy water profusely tickling against our shivering backs,
I wanted to sip bubbling coffee with you beside the fireplace; relish the warmth of your breath wafting in the air,
I wanted to infuriate you to the threshold of irritation; then massage your sacrosanct feet till they felt rejuvenated,
I wanted to hoist you high and handsome towards the sky; asking the creator to bestow upon you my share of felicity,
I wanted to assist you prepare our supper for the night; frivolously spraying upon you fresh tomato juice to hear your animated squeals,
I wanted to ensure that you remained invincibly safe at all moments; hovering like a shadow behind you; not abdicating from your presence even if you rebuked me,
I wanted to attain the power of clairvoyance; satiating the most minuscule of your demands before you even uttered them,
I wanted to kiss you unrelentingly; for as long as indispensable air lasted in our lungs,
And I wanted to relinquish my terrestrial pleasures blending my blood with you; leave for my destination to heaven; the instant god decided to take you from me in his arms.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
