Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)


The candlewax castle melted like a pack of soft cards;
under blistering rays of flamboyantly fiery sunshine,
The panther melted at its mouth; when it sighted a
robust fleet of deer galloping rampantly through the
The desert sands inevitably melted in scorching
summer; at the sight of the celestially rejuvenating
pool of shimmering mirage,
The clouds in the cosmos melted thunderously; as they
hovered over a blanket of profusely green trees and
mystical shrub,
The dog's tongue melted insatiably; as it cast its
greedy eyes upon the juicy chunk of bone poking
alluringly from its masters pocket,
The beggar melted in mind; body and soul; as he
perceived a dungeon inundated with opulently
glittering gold in his nocturnal dreams,
The lips melted in unsustainable passion; as they saw
the person of their most stupendous conceptions; right
before their rubicund periphery,
The giant melted in wholesome entirety; as it
witnessed the colossal kingdom of fleshy molecules
wandering helplessly without an iota of caution or
sagacious calm,
The mirror melted in a million pieces; as it
confronted the ghastly skeleton of a man; who once
upon a time used to admire himself in the same,
The snow melted on the boundless hills; as fireballs
of pugnacious light caressed it vindictively; from
every conceivable side,
The voice melted into a trickle of its original self;
as an atmosphere of satanic terror; abruptly snapped
the melody of its heart,
The conglomerate of gigantic leaves melted to bits of
inconspicuous raw ash; as flames of pugnaciously
golden fire escalated high and handsome towards the
The thunderously deafening echo melted into gruesome
nothingness; as it clashed umpteenth number of times
against the chain of cold blooded rocks,
The blatantly audacious footsteps melted into
infinitesimally remote space; as they were besieged by
the blood curling sound of menacing death,
The slabs of brilliantly sparkling yellow butter
melted into a curry of slim grease; when brutally
spread with a gleaming knife on the periphery of
supremely handsome and sizzling toast,
The pair of vivaciously emphatic eyes melted into
diminutively shrunk plastic; as they sighted the
lifeless body of the person they vehemently adored and
The boisterous chirping of sporty birds melted
submissively; as the last beam of brightness
disappeared brusquely behind the cocoon of scarlet
The life of a tangible individual
melted in wholesome
entirety; as and when the Creator waved his hand and
And my heart melted into an island of tumultuously
tantalizing paradise; at the tiniest whisper of my
beloved; the most faintest cry of her enchantingly
everlasting romance.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
