Treasure Island

Samah Khan


I loved you


I loved you like the crashing waves love the turbulent gale
I loved you like the seagulls loved the soft sea’s lore
I loved you like the mountains love the rippling vale
I loved you like a drowning man loves the nearby shore

I loved you like sunset, like sunrise, like dawn
I loved you when it was right, even more so when it was wrong
I loved you when you were here and yearned when you were gone
I loved you in the eve, I loved you in the morn

I loved your happy eyes, I loved your angry mouth
I loved your creased forehead, I loved your disquieted doubt
I loved your pointed ears, I loved your reddened nose
I loved your warm hands, I loved your frostbitten toes

I loved the way you loved, I loved the way you spoke
I loved the way you walked and the way you said my name
I loved your sleepy baritone, I loved your every joke
I loved who you were when with me, I loved who I became

I loved that even when you yelled, I couldn’t help but love your words
I loved that when you said goodbye, it was so real, so unrehearsed
I loved that when you walked away, there was nothing I could do
But what I loved the most was that I learnt to stop loving you.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
