Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


A Flickering Love


Tender is my epicenter
For love is a flickering flame
Blazing like an inferno in the sanctuary of your press
Yet ceasing to residual embers
In the absence of your imprint
Your succulent lips that enwrap my world
Like the petals of a wild hibiscus
Fragrant and exploding of nectar
For desire to erupt like an eternal geyser
......................
Yet, you appear and disappear
Like the flow and ebb of the fickle tide
You're like a sooty tern
Migrating to your desolate cocoon
When my heart is yearning
For your apical touch, the silk of your skin
.......................
I am like the sun, thriving
In the monotony of my calling
From daybreak to twilight
One in spirit with the tempo of nature
You are the moon
Changing like the ripple of the surf
On occasions naked in your exuding charm
As your endless smile infects
Every thread of my heart's nucleus
Yet you transform like a chameleon
As your senses taste the peril of commitment
For you're like a wild mustang
In your endless search for the spirit of adventure
You're the lips of Aeolus
That brushes against her endless suitors
In her breathtaking guile
...........................
Now I am drowning in oceans of doubt
Of your flickering hearth
As I press my lips against torrents of destiny
Yearning for a tryst with an apical love
Supremely committed
Like a martyr wielding blades of fidelity
To pave my crossroad with the tar of conviction
To explode in mirth like a dazzling supernova
For the heart to anchor to the placid waters
Of an uncomplicated love

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
