Treasure Island

Bijay Kant Dubey


Say, Do You Love Me?


Say, do you love me, love me,
Said she in tears,
Wiping them with one hand
And eye-lashes wet with, splashed with tears,
Saw I them slowly and sadly.

Say, do you love me, love me,
Asked she tearfully
And I could not,
I love you, love you,
I love you.

I just saw, saw the tears coming down,
Teardrops falling down,
The cheeks smeared and wet with
And just a stone stood I
Viewing her.

How heartless and cruel had I been,
Now think I
That went she on saying,
Do you love me, do you love me
And I flirting with love.

How rocky and stony looked I,
My heart laden with rocks and stones
And as a frozen and fossilized fellow
Stood I
Hearing her sobs and cries!

And this is how, after her departure,
Have I started hating myself
And confessing,
How bloody and brutal
Had I been in my love to her!

And it is repentance, expiation that
My love I have not found so far,
Still now go about searching
That love, that face, that soul and heart,
That face-cutting asking me frequently, quite innocently,
Do you love me, do you love me?
Say, do you love me?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
