Treasure Island

ANJALI SINHA


* MY TRUTH - YOUR LIES *


O why O why! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! -in that megalomaniac style
Tried piggybanking in kleptomanical frame
Words or arrows-were they verbatim?
Why sought thee a frame
Like this a path so curvacious
Out of your quiver-mind of math and vision
So frightful but simultaneously hilarious
So that the grandiose of a story could emanate
Of two lonely souls in this universe of skulduggery

Yes lies galore
To seek the truth
Thats what thou sayeth
To find out the truth
Was it just truth t’was the seeking
Or was it the plane the testing ground?
Of two birds in migration seeking
Lost love over hills and vales
And danes of shame

Words juggled forth in and out
Now a new confoundment
Is this a new prank?
Or just a ruse
To pamper ones pride
In arithmetic progressions
Of simultaneous equations and multiplications.

Yes truth still seeks truth
Is afraid to ask more
Feels still some lies be
Lurking behind
Those permutations and combinations
Those trignometrical equations of
Tan thetas is sine theta upon cos theta
Or is it still,
The pranks of that black and blue
Butter thief
As deceptive of a mirage in a desert

How is skulduggery served?
Yes how is this served
In algorithmic allegories
Or in petri dishes of love and agar

How is skulduggery served?
Yes how is this skulduggery served
My cherried lips as microcosms
On petri dishes of love and snippets
Of stolen couplets of Spanish and French
Or should it be in permutations and combinations of
Arithmetic progressions.
My fettish desires of that virtual kiss
Nay not legal-that kiss of vengeance
But osculatory perfunction
Of my pure infection.

To soothe that blurred appearance
Here are those pictures
Seen in those visions
But secret worries
Nagged me whole sale
What if you have
Actually sold me?
As in sayings-
To that website
Of woman’s carnal desires
To grand old men
Of Idis’ empires.

Though thou art so close, yet so far
A fear still hides in my bosom
How do I clear that fear?

Asked my Lord
Give me the strength
To chose the right
In thy clear sight
If it be thy holy will
Then make me that oil
In his lamp
To shine and burn
With him forever
Or just let me be that perfume
That lingereth in him
Until I am no more
But that lingering fragrance
Be his muted light
A smile in his life
Be it only for a second
But one that will
Remain in our hearts
UNTIL DEATH DO US PART

    Beyond all lies there was/is one truth-

    [Verse 1]
    Age ye rooz beri safar
    Beri ze pisham bi khabar
    Asire royaha misham
    Dobare baz tanha misham
    Be shab migam pisham bemoone
    Be baad migam ta sob bekhoone
    Bekhoone az diare yari
    Chera miri tanham mizari?

    Age ye rooz faraamoosham koni
    Tarke aaghoosham koni
    Parandeie darya misham
    Too change moj raha misham
    Be del migam khamoosh bemoone
    Miram ke har kassi bedoone
    Miram bessooie oon diari
    Ke toosh mano tanha nazaari

    [Hook]
    Age ye roozy noome to
    Too gooshe man seda kone
    Dobare baz ghamet biad
    Ke mano mobtala kone
    Be del migam karish nabashe
    Bezareh darde to davah she
    Bereh tooyeh tamoomeh joonam
    Keh baz barat avaz bekhoonam

    [Verse 2]
    Age bazam delet meekhad
    Yareh yek deegar basheem
    Mesaleh ayoomeh ghadeem
    Bensheeneem va sahar pasheem
    Bayad delet rangee begeereh
    Dobareh ahangee begeereh
    Begeereh rangeh oon deeyaree
    Keh toosh mana tanha nazaree

    Age mikhay peesham bemoonee
    Beeya ta bagheeye javoonee
    Beeya to poost beh ostokhooneh
    Nazar delam tanha bemooneh
    Bezar shabam rangee begeereh
    Dobareh ahangee begeereh
    Begeereh rangeh oon deeyaree
    Keh toosh mana tanha nazaree (Report) Reply

    hi,
    It's a nice poem, so true about the lies that circumscribe a life of love sometimes. But if at all lies are not detected, not at all admitted but by its nature it gradually becomes transparent and fades out to surface the truth.
    I find it so heartspoken one. Enjoyed it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    My fettish desires of that virtual kiss
    Nay not legal-that kiss of vengeance
    But osculatory perfunction
    Of my pure infection..............................
    love when bewilders on the rune of deceit
    legacy of kisses slowly turns to fossil
    yet mathematics of monalisa reflexes
    into the geometry of Freudian curvatures, wonderful exposition of dialectical method to dissipate truth on the ruse of salubrious subtlety, yet ingenious by imagery and metaphors, superb yet ingenious,10+++, thanks for shariong (Report) Reply

    O why O why! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! -................................
    Of two lonely souls in this universe of skulduggery

    Grand opening......a smart usage of phrases and words, shows your mastery with the language and life....meaningful questions asked here provide a solid start to an inquisitive journey on a real curvacious road....

    Yes lies galore.......
    ............And danes of shame

    this further intesifies the quest and desire of going to the depth, by questioning the very essence of a relationship...simple words yet powerful message here....

    Words juggled forth in and out
    .....................................
    Of simultaneous equations and multiplications.

    yet again further inroads are made here in the deeper aspects of relationship and more questions surface....I think a strong parallel can be drawn here with life...I am sure lot of readers would have experienced this kind of stuff in their lives..

    Yes truth still seeks truth..................
    ..........As deceptive of a mirage in a desert

    truth is afraid at times, I agree for it may uncover some ugly lies...this is a very strong stanza....I liked it very much

    How is skulduggery served?
    My fettish desires of that virtual kiss
    Nay not legal-that kiss of vengeance
    But osculatory perfunction
    Of my pure infection.

    These two stanzas deal with how people feign something and how smooth operators deliver the tricks to the innocent minds and hearts...I loved some metaphors here.....again superlative language displayed here....


    To soothe that blurred appearance
    .........................
    To grand old men
    Of Idis’ empires.

    Wow is the word for this stanza, vivid imagery here and meaningful questions that come staright from the depth of a pure and innocent heart, a hint of lament and disgust here, a bit of complaint, a touch sad and concerned...this stanza acts as a perfect cog in this poetic machine.....

    Though thou art so close, yet so far
    .....What a powerful phrase here, do we know each other, near yet far, knwing the unknowns about someone close, appearances may deceive, perceptions may misguide and heart felt beliefs may give way one day.....this one has pain and bit of grief in here.....


    Asked my Lord
    Give me the strength
    To chose the right
    In thy clear sight
    If it be thy holy will
    Then make me that oil
    In his lamp
    To shine and burn
    With him forever
    Or just let me be that perfume
    That lingereth in him
    Until I am no more
    But that lingering fragrance
    Be his muted light
    A smile in his life
    Be it only for a second
    But one that will
    Remain in our hearts
    UNTIL DEATH DO US PART

    The last stanza is as divine as a prayer is, words are sacred and powerful, meaningful and stir the conscience and the soul at the same time....the phrases are lovely, to be the oil in his lamp, the perfume that lingers until......and a smile that stays forever in his /our hearts till the end of this world....

    I do not know if I fully understood this poem, but can surely say that it has urged tme to learn more and I salute to your poetic skills.....

    The Doomsday

    Yet the lies than truths
    To the deceptive illusions of visions
    What I craft like no lunatic
    From earth and heaven bring beauty
    No holy man preaching good deeds
    Love is the morale of this story told
    Lies that I loved in fantasy
    Truth shall be like another dismay
    Appearance of you shall no more
    No less than the doomsday

    ..........good poem Anjali.10++ (Report) Reply

    Anjali the mathematician and Anjali the poet joined hands so nicely in the poem...'a graphic picture is available through choicest phrases such as 'fetish desire for a virtual kiss'(I wanted one to know its type and force! ! !) , secret worries nagged me wholsale, osculatory perfunction of mypure infection and so on.
    The poem is long, but not an issue. The reader can read for the poem for long and enjoy the long company of the poet.. that is the plus point of a lengthy poem... (Report) Reply

  • Carl Harris (1/17/2010 8:27:00 PM)

    This is a very interesting if somewhat long poem, Anjali, but I liked how you adroitly moved into the summation of this fascinating poem, which made it a bit more understandable for your readers. This fine write often touches upon beauty, but also upon a bit of sarcasism as well for a lover who tries to be devious instead of loving. Carl. (Report) Reply
