Treasure Island

Neela Nath


the owner
of the cloudy
mind is covering
my way
or recording
me with the
sound of a queer
I can't get
the clean
But, it's not
raining outside.
And, the smog
is spreading out
far and wide.
Hatred and love
are lying
side by side.
The sky doesn't
meet the Moon....
Perhaps it's
not possible!

    Love and Hate lying side by side
    That seems to be the situation for most of this world.
    How do we get love next to love? Send hate down the road

    Always a pleasure reading all you pen

    Ah, ok I see now very nicely done. Sometimes words from one part of the world hold a different meaning or are often misused which takes away from the actual meaning of the word and so when I read this that is why I was confused at first but thanks for clearing it up =) Allan (Report) Reply

    The lover follows her every footstep, her conversation with other.She knows it.The sound of his every activity doesn't escape her notice.This is the music she enjoys hearing and also feels his presence in absence.That's the thing.Thanks Allan for your lovely comment. (Report) Reply

    Well they say love and hated are 2 branches that come from the same tree. Both polar opposite ends of the spectrum. It is interesting in watching 2 people that absolutely loathe each other grow into loving each other where you see the one feeling fading into the other. Nicely done though I did like this poem. I didn't quite understand the part about the 'queer music though'? Either way I like the theme, Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
