Treasure Island

Avinash Nair

(19/10/1988)

Existence


When time passes as time does,
Without you noticing it passing by,
A helpless senselessness creeps in you
That becomes impossible to hide.
You act and you react
But tis all in vain,
You cannot hide the fact
The constant pain,
Of life and living
Of strife and surviving.
You smile without any happiness,
You cry but there is no sadness,
Tis all a numbness,
A coldness
Of mere existence.

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
