Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

my life without you


My life without you; was like the resplendently exotic
rose left disdainfully estranged; amidst an
acrimonious battalion of ballistically pugnacious
cactus,
My life without you; was like the brilliantly vibrant
eye left penuriously staggering; amidst a venomous
graveyard of invidiously sinister darkness,
My life without you; was like the astoundingly
aristocratic Sun left miserably sulking; behind a
treacherously penalizing coffin of shaggily disheveled
and adulterated clouds,
My life without you; was like the regally bountiful
pearls left inexorably fretting; in the sordidly gory
interiors of the raunchily fetid gutter pipe,
My life without you; was like the exuberantly
triumphant bird left hopelessly wailing; behind the
diabolically victimizing and satanically gleaming
prison bars,
My life without you; was like the pinnacle of the
unassailable mountain left dreadfully defeated; under
a frigidly threadbare avalanche of feckless ice,
My life without you; was like the patriotically
blazing warrior left relentlessly cursing his luck;
amidst the manipulatively parasitic politicians,
My life without you; was like the euphorically
victorious ocean left to lugubriously slaver; amidst
the dastardly cockroaches of the diminutively soiled
lavatory seat,

My life without you; was like the fantastically
eclectic artist left to unstoppably asphyxiate;
obnoxiously imprisoned within the walls of the
monotonously matchbox shaped and wastrel office,
My life without you; was like the newly embellished
bride left hysterically sobbing; amidst insurmountably
punitive layers of cadaverously widowed white,

My life without you; was like the blissfully wedded
couple left to enjoy their iridescent honeymoon;
amidst the rambunctiously dusty and discordantly
begging streets,

My life without you; was like the intrepidly young man
left to miserably deteriorate; amidst heavy numbered
glasses; forlorn crutches and a bedraggled walking
stick,
My life without you; was like timelessly ticking clock
left to vindictively weep; amidst the infinitesimally
worthless dwelling of the invisible ghosts,
My life without you; was like the exquisitely redolent
and feather tipped pen left to become delirious;
amidst the mordantly corrugated periphery of the
jaggedly cold-hearted rocks,
My life without you; was like the unflinchingly
handsome panther left to disparagingly growl; amidst
lackluster blades of nimbly vegetarian and teasingly
evanescent grass,
My life without you; was like the unfathomably
mellifluous nightingale left to bang its beak; amidst
the brutally stuttering horde of the hedonistically
stone deaf,
My life without you; was like irrefutably
scintillating truth and humanity left to march; in the
land of the ignominiously scurrilous and baselessly
devilish hell,
My life without you; was like rhapsodically insatiable
breath left to perniciously wither; under the hood of
the dolorously damned and strangulating coffin of
extinction,
And my life without you O! Eternal beloved; was like
the passionately immortal heart heartlessly left;
amidst the sadistically unsavory scorpions of severely
jinxed betrayal.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
