Treasure Island

Suchitra Bandi


Love me as I am

looking into the mirror
i saw my reflection
and then i found a truth
its nowhere near perfection

though i see it everyday
though i know how i look
i never saw a flaw in it
maybe thats the way i took

but today, u made me see
the flaws the scars etched in
i stood shell shocked at this
felt like i committed a sin

no matter how i look
i had confidence in me
but today my reflection is
as repulsive as it can be

the sparkle in my eyes
bubbly bounce when i walked
my spirited composure
vanished the moment we talked

does beauty matter in love
i asked myself today
will it vanish then in future
when oldness makes its way

i may not be attractive
i may not be beautiful
but i confidently dare you
to find the one more dutiful

will anyone ever be able to
love you more than i do
but now the love for you's gone
'coz i love myself more than you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
