Treasure Island

Shemsi Elsani



Craving for
Yearn for
Hunger for
One thing
The forbider

Straight wasn't enough
Looking for more
The crooked
The stronger
The greater
The pleasurer
The devious
Lying face-off

Gracefullness, intensified
Persuading the reactions
Onwards and upwards
Almost defeated
Yet determined
Gave in not a thing
Embraced full heartedly
To the one, knavishness

One way
An only way
Optional yet mandatory
Engraved deeply
Permanently stayed
Inhabited, ever leaving
Living and blossoms
Ruling the ruler
Slaved to self pitiness

Occupied at the deepest base
Uncurable, like a black magic
Casting the evilness
Consumed the pureness
Left in the dark, unassisted
Forever lost, inside

Self mutilated from within
Destructing the goodness
Like nefarious devil
Unforgiven, like a mortal sinner
Crying to the blackest of tears
Burnt to ashiness
Left with nothing but penance

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
