Treasure Island

Leslie Ching

(January 8,1995- / Toronto, ON, Canada)


In the depths of silence
Pits of despair
Holes of doubt
Infinite nothing
Pierces the air

Yearning for just
Another human presence
To pass the time with-




A black hole sucked me in
And won't let go
As much as I tug and shake
Beg and cry

I fell off a cliff
And the sea welcomed me
Three hundred feet below
Swallowing me whole

    Great poetic talent and maturity of thought. It left me wonder struck that you could write it at so young an age. Keep it up.

    i think that this is an amazing poem..
    but sometimes, when people feel like they are alone, they arent. they just need to find the light in their day and keep themselves motivated to get out of the horrific situation they are in. and once they are out, they will look back and realize how strong they were to not give up.

Poem of the Day

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
