Treasure Island

Desperate To Make A Link..


From the other side of the road,
Looking at your room, windowed,
I am desperate to make a link,
Hoping you take a break and blink,
May be for a pinch of air,
May be to shed some despair,
With elbows resting on the frame
You see me, but I have no name
I try again, I wanna try more
Till the blood is flowing, till my heart gets sore
Haphazard are both, me and my sentiments
As I choose the flat, the one, your adjacent
Punching and screaming, to show my hurt
Through the thickness of wall, I see you revert
I stand at your door, I stand on the edge
But unlike always, I lose the courage
I smell you working, from the outside
When the voices of my heart abide
I have lost you, to the hands of hatred
Remnant of love has long been shredded
And you feel the difference, not any more
If I spend the hours, standing at your door
The one, the brutal killer of your heart
I leave, every time your bleeding starts
Shoving the weapon of my curse
Till on the floor, all your hopes disperse
And when I am done with my crime
I go back to the other side of the road line
For maybe you come for a pinch of air
May be you come just to shed some despair
Hoping you take a break and blink
At my window, I am desperate to make a link..

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.
