Treasure Island

C. P. Sharma

(July 12,1941 / Bissau, Rajasthan)

Stray Thoughts

On the dark canvas of night
I paint full bright dreams
In the brilliance of day light
They wash away, I scream

He is the lover who kisses you,
I am His lips.! ! !
He is the painter,
I am His brush! ! !

Struggle and strife of the world I know
Will be over when ends the puppet show

I erred a thousand times, did I ever hate myself!
When others err, why hate at the moment's spur! ! !

When I look within, the Universe is mine
Outside world is beyond control, I pine

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
