Treasure Island

malini kadir

(17th october / Nagapatinam, a coastal port, Tamilnadu, India NOW RESIDING IN TRICHY)

Inch by Inch

Inch by Inch

Inch by inch
I shall impinge
Into your heart
Sure! ! If you have a heart!

Plague you with smiles
Till your cheeks grin still
Freezing your happiness; paramour!
Sure! ! If you have a sense of humour!

I will make you pick your food
With thoughts far away
Over the hills
Sure! ! If you visit my window sills

I will make you dial the number
Never again! Ever again
Your “will” at work in your tall stride!
Sure! ! Ganging up with your pride! !

I will make you dismiss me
From the corners of your mind
Let my smile and open hair waving invite
Sure! ! Make you forget yourself that’s right! !

Inch by inch
Pinch you awake
Put your libido at stake
Sure! Give you a mental shake! !

Take a bet!
I have won you man
The minute you walked through
So sure! Your love turned true! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
