Treasure Island

Cheryl Butler

(07/26/1970 / queens ny)

A cowardly disguise

Twirling around in swirls
hurt in pain
my haute and my pride

I wanna love
I hate

I feel myself in dark rims of my emo thoughts
I smell blackness
I hear shame
Love dosent hurt
it blames
hate in ingnorance
not standing to its resposibiltiy
love cowars like a liar


Ill turn back from my
iceness of resent
I hate
love hates!

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
