Treasure Island

Mary Rowena


Abyss


If I were let to taste but not to bite
And words were to be heard but not to fright
Then maybe in time I could learn to lust
Allow innocence perish into dust

Although I am numb from wounds yet to heal
Does not mean a new love can’t make me feel
Is it not yet obvious souls love pain?
The facts lie in the stats of self-restrain

Why in our modern age do we obsess?
With age and time and feelings we confess?
Let’s replace our faith in equality
And entwine individuality

Once we saw a circle not an ellipse
And thought infinity of sunken ships
So tell me I am wrong when I say this
A kiss in the abyss is just a kiss

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
