Treasure Island

Vivek Mehta


Have we met before?


Since the moment we met
My heart asks from the core
This question all the time
Have we met before?

I don’t remember the time
Nor I know the place
All I remember is
The dazzle of your face

It’s always so momentary
When we come across
I just get perplexed
To see your eternal gloss

Now it’s hard for me
To come and talk to you
And ask you if you feel
The same way as I do

A thought strikes my mind
That you are the one
I kept seeking all the time
In dark and under the sun

I met you many times
In the world of my dreams
But you’ll perceive this familiarity
As insanity as it seems

I used to think about you
In festivity and in loneliness
My friends sometimes termed
My belief as madness

It was always a dream
That I meet you one day
But never had I thought
That I’ll see you on the way

By the time I try to find
A way to start talking
Someone calls you away
And you start walking

To block your way
I don’t have any words
For if I tell the truth
You’ll sure call me nerds

You are going away
Leaving me with this pain
But all I can do is hope
To see you once again.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
