Treasure Island

jibin joseph

(05 dec 1980 / cochin, kerala state, india)


My life was dumb and dull
Used to see in black and white
Then she appeared, my angel
Now rainbows all over my sight

My life turned meaningful
More than that so colourful
She paints my heart
With her brush of love

Now my heart so colourful
Like a million rainbows

(mouth the word COLOURFUL to your ladylove / lover and she / he will solve the riddle for you)


one for each colour of rainbow

    It's amazing when you find a Love that can inspire your dull and colorless vision to gain perspective and meaning. This poem makes that very apparent. Very nice poem, Jibin.
