Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn


#10 (from, ‘What's Really Happening - In 54 numbers’)


A love and hate relationship,
Will never do for me;
I must have more in my power chip,
To be or not to be.

The question is to give a try,
The feelings that we keep inside.
The goal, is to reach the sky,
And do what we consider right.

If I could answer only this:
What happened to our heart?
I wouldn't even have to wish,
That we could begin from start.

    Hi, Peter. A few comments about various poems. First of all, I really liked that you threw in 'to be or not to be' here. It was a nice surprise.
    About your poetry in another language - what language is that?
    And lastly - I like your short nature poems, but when I saw how many you have, I just thought - 'redundant'. (Report) Reply

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,
