Treasure Island

A Paradise Fix


The glare of the sun stuns my eyes,
left with a hangover from last nights cries.
Mornings first breath hits me hard-
struggling to stand, feeling totally off guard.

A life of kissing you and holding you close;
is nothing short of a lethal dose.
If I could drown in a flood of my own tears,
anything to free me from these ghostly fears.

You are my drug, and I need a paradise fix-
without you I begin to trip and wonder; a fatal mix.
It's your love that keeps me breathing and alive,
without you, my heart and soul shall not thrive.

I miss you when I'm screaming your name;
my heart is cold; you iced the flame.
Trapped and dying in this sad fantasy,
just a shell of a woman; exposed for all to see.

Without your love, oxygen alone cannot save me,
you stole my heart from under me; then left the key.
When you disappear, and steal away in the night-
think of me as I slowly begin to fade from sight...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
