Treasure Island

Jared Hirsch


i would be so much better off without
your smile and your image burnt into
my memory or
your curves and your countenance lingering in
my dreams and my mind but
i still fight to keep
you in
my memory and dreams and mind because
i am so maliciously addicted to

    You have expressed the obsession one could have for another so well. When a poem is well written it does not require complicated forms or a lot of words to convey the depth of feeling. (Report) Reply

    Love this poem! You've depicted perfectly what it is like to be addicted to another being. All those mixed up feelings of wanting all images of them to disappear but yet keeping them in the forefront of the mind because you just cns't let go. Well done! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
