Treasure Island

twilight by the river


A so called life


Yesterday was the last chapter of my life
I cut my soul open with a knife
To set my sorrow free
But along the way i lost the key
There is no turning back no remedy
Only shattered hopes filling the air
Loosely hanging to a thread of despair
Colours keep turning to black
Trying to survive this life wreck
Just on my way out
But i lost the key
Shadows are flying everywhere
Yesterday i was lost
And what bitters the most
There is no turning back no remedy

    Shadow I can no longer cast when reaching the light. I leave that shadow in the behind in the past, moving on and making my life again be bright. Excellent and well penned poem, keep it up! I have been there and survived.10+++, Love and Peace... (Report) Reply

    The part about shadows flying everywhere - this is certainly a disparaging feeling. I have been there before; Darkness moving with darkness- I can certainly relate. Take care 'twilight' (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
