Treasure Island

Tiku akp


Death


The moment of truth has arrived
Everywhere there is calm
The air is counting its steps
In a hurry to fly over the palm

The innocent smile, the insipid tear
Lose meanings inside the box of wood
The blood freezes in the veins
That has grown full since childhood

The rising sun losses its glow
Ruddy cleavages run dry and flat
The sly feet are locked in chain
Love would no more torment the heart

The light mingles with dark
There is no happiness no sorrow
The time stretches to eternity
The present is gone, there is no tomorrow

    (Love would no more torment the heart) ... way of perception is different! !
    (The present is gone, there is no tomorrow) ...it depicts pessimistic approach towards life..
    Beautifully composed! !
    Enriched with bitter reality! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    A picture of total negation.The air of pensiveness is blowing around.Glum mood is penned successfully.10+++ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
