Treasure Island

The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)

All I Am Is A Memory


When you go and think of me,
All you'll think is misery.
Stood tall, you made it through.
In the end I'm not with you.

Through the secrets and the lies,
Are the answers unexpressed.
But in the darkness I'm inside,
And in death is where I rest.

When you go and think of me,
All you'll think is misery.
Stood tall, you made it through.
In the end I'm not with you.

That time is over and I have gone.
I stand alone, cold and dismayed.
There you smile, you're moving on,
Watching my strength fade away.

When you go and think of me,
All you'll think is misery.
Stood tall, you made it through.
In the end I'm not with you.

When you go and think of me,
All you'll think is misery.
When you look back and you see,
All I am is a memory.

    i have not read half the fortress; i assume that is one of your poems. i like the rhyming and flow and repetition of lines, and then the change of line-repetition at the end. not sure i understand it. i would be happy if i were to die and there was a memory left......hopefully a fond one.

    I like the alternating rhyming pattern, the repetition of verses and the factual objectiveness of the poem. It's very thoughtful, quite slow in pace methinks. Great stuff; like most of your poems!

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;
