Treasure Island

Namrata Das Adhikary

(9th November,1994 / Kolkata, India)

Éphémère et éternelle


Of lust lost it's pride the day I touched her,
Mind seeking solace with the thoughts of what we're;
Memories contain the realm of Paradise
With you in my heart and a guilt like deice.


If there lives the immortal:
The Knights would bleed for you,
The Kings would seek for you,
With the power of the Almighty in my hand-
I would have you against every errand.


She loves me, truth which be might-
Hopeful were the eyes, they lit bright.
With a shiver under my skin, her rosy lips benign,
They brushed through my own, my thoughts didn't whine.


But under my mask there lay the brow:
Pretty discontent with what it were,
Since 'twas lust and my heart demur;
Awaiting your touch, with love raised higher-
Till we make love and rebuild our empire...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This little tale depicts the feelings of a lover(consider him royal, or someone like you) for his lost beloved. After the heavy loss, he went physical with another lady...most probably, out of lust. Underneath his skin, he was still awaiting his beloved.. even though she was dead; since now he realises that he can never love any other woman like he had once loved. He reminisces his bygone days, when his empire wasn't as null like present, when his kingdom was at the epitome of Paradise with his lady by his side.

In the content, 'you' refers to his lost beloved, and 'her' refers to the his present partner. The lover places his doubt, that his present partner might be in love with him. But irrespective of that, he can't seem to do away with his feelings for the one he has always loved.

In the second line of the poem, the lover says 'we're' and not 'we were' since he still considers his beloved to be his only one.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
