Treasure Island

Shamsul Husain

(23/04/1977 / Bareilly, UP, India-243122)

Alas!


Alas!

I know the two shores of a river can’t meet

Even though those are all the way all along

But I can’t understand what is actually wrong


Alas!

You know both of us promised each other then

Now I have a feeling in me of a broken heart

Alas! I missed you and my good time has gone


Alas!

Now tell, how can I sing that same love song?

How long should I bear this? tell me please

As you know it has already been a time long

Poet's Notes about The Poem

About the love birds residing on opposite ends. Though the shores are joined through waters but are not together... Shamsul Husain

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
