Treasure Island

A Land So Strange


I found today
A land so strange

One of people
Who did not fight

Spoke in calm
Voices of reason

They greeted me
Taking me in as brother

I shared in
Their songs

But soon the walls
Closed in

The colors of life
Began fading

Their conversations
Ran drier than the Sahara

My mind began
Rotting, my imagination dying

They took hold of me
Replacing skin with cold steel

And my will to live was
Drained by the monotone air

I awoke
In a sweat, screaming

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
