Treasure Island

Noah Body


Always those scars will remain


Once your heart was whole
Strongly it beat, on and on
Full of love and friendship
No part of it was gone

Then they pulled out
Their friendship went away
It tore it in pieces
That they would not stay

A tiny fissure it started as
Then it cracked more, more it grew
It hurt so much and still it grew
Until it formed a circle, a deep one too

The hole it leaves
When they stop loving you
Is big enough to
Drive a truck through

A lifetime promised
But one you'll never see
You can only ask
Why'd you stop loving me?

It is agony throughout
Pain that's like no other
It won't kill you have no doubt
Though you feel you'll smother

It takes not just your heart
For it rips at the very soul
Leaving tiny little pieces
That all fit into a bowl

A jigsaw puzzle is all that remains
A thousand pieces, mixed up all
Putting them back where they belong
Is a job that isn't so small

Placing each small piece
Back where it goes
Rips your heart again
Pain is all that it knows

Unevenly do they seem to fit
When they go back into their spot
Push and pull them to make them fit
It seems the bleeding will never clot

Over time the bleeds slowly stop
Pain fades away, wounds heal
It fades into the black
It all becomes so unreal

Always those scars will remain
Forever, this is true
Because I have never
Gotten over you

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
