Treasure Island

Williamsji Maveli

She is my better-half!


As much as I had
thought of her to be
a feminine by gender;
That much she is not;
Half nude she is,
Half a female;
Half a male; .
She is my better-half!
Her life goes by,
and you may lie
with a female,
to what extend
can you come
to know a real female?
She whom I so long thought
I knew –
She whom I know is
nothing like that,
In fact, She’s the one
I most don’t know.
As much as I had thought
her to be female,
That much she is not:
Half-naked she is,
Half a female;
Half a male;
She is my better-half!

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,
