Treasure Island

sara winters


Alone


I want to have a smile
instead of a frown
but I've been let down
way too many times
I still want to trust
I still want to believe

But there's no one to call
and share a day with
no one who will intertwine
with my crazy mind
no one who really wants
to step inside

It's all shadows and glazes
on a dry cake I didn't bake
I pass it around to share
and no one really likes it
they're just way too polite

seasons pass by my tired face
no one listens to what I say
It's not alright to feel a little pain
I don't know who to be anymore

Forced smiles people can see
I think they see right through me
see that I really don't care
that I see the ugly side to life
I see the truths people try to hide
they see their ugliness on my face
and know my smile is fake

They see the cold bitter storm
frozen on my face
just makes them want
to look away
my smile is a cold empty cave

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
