Treasure Island

Neela Nath

Shadow Me

Shadow me oh my
Dark emotion.
Shadow me all the way!

Shadow me to rock
In cradle heart,
To sway and just to sway!

Shadow me as a
Shady love tree,
In my hot, scorching day!

Shadow me must in,
Middle of night,
Like a gleaming pure ray!

Shadow me, shadow,
My foggy love,
Shadow wild me to tame.

Shadow to follow
My every step,
Shadow me in each poem!

    Shadows do not rock the craddle when it is heart.My dear heart does not need shades or shadows.Heart is indefatigable.Its better to wish heart her job best to pump blood to the brain in.Anything more risks a collapse where the sustenance is always a bloody tenure.Its better not to make perjury to heart.Love should be the normal oscitance of heart that goes through spontaneous phases.But a heart i do not know why is subjected to be broken everytime.A person defying could appear well pulchritudinous.So let the rheum of blood flow like the rhythm of poetry.It will guide you its own way.Whoever comes in between i can say people are not meant to be forever.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
