Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

Love Without Language


If I throw a piece of wood
Into a burning coal,
It will burst into a thicker flame
Proving nature’s right.

If I wink at you;
You smile back,
I’d lost my composure;
And my heart melts within my being

If you felt love by this fellow,
And you nurse same feelings;
We need no language to explain how we feel:
Cause love is a universal language.

But if you decide to discriminate,
And trade my feelings for fishes
No hard feelings;
I will walk taller than miles.

Get lost with tides,
At the end of time;
I will be the knight you'll never forget;
I am your first language!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

THEME: men will discriminate against their fellow men because of language barrier; but that cannot stop the heart from loving whom it pleases; because the heart knows no language.
Fire recognizes wood when being thrown inside, like minds attracts each other, but men will always fight what is right because of so call mother tongue.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
