Treasure Island

Musfiq us shaleheen

(31st, December,1970 / Khulna, Bangladesh)

The broken gadget


Any song can sound sweet,
if you tune your tone right
Add a lyric
and a melody
and where there is poetry, there is beauty
But some songs are not only a love song
This idea of a twisted, passionate, black and blue love song
is not romantic

You were a broken gadget
and I thought I would know how to handle it.
Like if I could be the only to patch you back up again,
everything would fall into place.
But I lost the injunction
and there were bit lost that I couldn't find
and too many jagged edges.
I couldn't let myself be torn down anymore
in an attempt to keep you whole

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
