Treasure Island

Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari

(Nov 19,1978 / Pakistan)


I remember
Walking down the haunted avenue
Of my childhood dreams
A lady in blue casting spell
On my plagued existence

In fraction of a second
The whole scenario changed

I am little above thirty
I am a so called wise man
I talk logic and practice realism

Last night
While I was writing
On the walls of my conscious mind
Lady from the haunted avenue
Spoke to me in her mesmerizing voice

You know-
Why you are always sad?
You love to think all the time

    o kamran dear
    when are you gonna get out
    this so called phase of yours
    of 'sadness'
    i dont like your sad poems
    and dont like to label you as a 'dark one'
    but otherwise a good write

    That little lady, gave you the clue to your sadness. Meditation is a good way to stop thinking, and stop the head working too hard. Through poetry you express your thinking, so keep thinking and keep these great poems coming. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    dude...when ever I read any of your work, it feels like I'm reading my own thoughts through your blessed pen......

    keep on going brother
    keep on writing
    and I'll collect tears from
    the words you scribble

    those dreams which I felt
    are broken and melt
    I picked with a yearn and
    hope it will mend.... asif

    rgds with many 10'ssssss

    what a logic to your sadness! I am not convinced Dr Kamran, I think you feel sad because you are reflective on your past and thoughtful about your present. A good poem to practice logic logical behaviour! (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
