Treasure Island

PramodThomas Arackal

June 05: Conroy, For You

June 05,
A year ago
I lost my friend
He lived a lot in his 23 years
Like a short song he went away
I didn’t cry at his funeral
I imagined the fire consumed him
One day he will resurrect like a tree
From it’s fallen bark
His sufferings were not less than his life
His sufferings was his life
He was alone in the auditorium of life
Like a sparrow in it’s nest, lonely
I met him in a bar
Miles away from my home
Dark as my mind
We shared the same cigarette
We talked the same language
We loved each other

He hanged himself
When I heard about it
I went to the same old bar
I smoked as strong as I can
And sank myself in alcohol
This world is not for ones who suffer
This world is not for ones who suffer
If I have courage I will also play a game with god
Like my friend.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
