Treasure Island

Russell Nero

(May 25th,1995)

Acadia


'I love you'
Should it be said, or like an army, should it halt and await command
Her beauty calls like an alluring, singing siren
the words threaten to grow a body
and separate from skin, part from voice
Never has a phrase contained unbelievable promise
accompanied by an overwhelming, devastating backlash
Nevertheless, she's the light drifting on the edge to call me back home
she's the sun never to set
her presence signifies a harmonious choir singing joyously
Her colorful, loving eyes plead for a knight in shining armor to come
to relieve the torturous heartache she has endured in the span of two years
Negativity has been her best friend all her life
a neglectful mother whispers lies
speaking as if she has the right to chastise
but Acadia
Acadia, she is a strong willed beautiful young woman
Acadia, Acadia
an infatuation unmeasured, a tempting temptress worthy of so much
'I love you'
Should it be said, or like an army, should it await command

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;
