Treasure Island

Nirode Ray

The Journey

You abandoned me
in the middle of the road,
It was a stormy night,
Lightning was piercing the sky
I couldn’t see the road far,
as it was dense dark
I faltered, I stumbled
I hardly saw the road mark.

Many years have passed,
Water has flown down the river
On the idyllic land, grass got thicker
I have been alone
Drenched in despair and cold
It is your tender touch
I have been craving for, all along.

Now it is hard to breathe,
Drugs don’t make me sleep
Near my windows I laze,
To see your face even in haze
When spring blooms,
I fancy pink of your bosoms
As the flower smells,
Aroma of your skin swells.

I hope you are with someone
you deeply care for
Someone deems you more precious,
I doubt that though
I will wait to the end, till you come back,
And caress me again
Even you return by mistake
That gesture I will gladly accept.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
