Treasure Island

umoh cyril

(05/12/1995 / Lagos nigeria)

Am the beast in you

To be the dirt on your shirt,
The one you never left,
The pillow on your bed,
Where you rest your head,

The part of you that never sleeps,
Like your heart that always beats,
The footprint you always left,
When you go into your nest,

To be your best love song,
To be your right and wrong,
To be your sweetest memory,
To fight your enemy,

To be the ghost in your dreams,
Your perfect nightmares,
The pain in your chest when you weep,
The loving boy in your nightmares,

To be what you never had before,
Your greatest desire in life,
The part in you that feels right,
And what you've always yearned for,

Your only best friend,
Am the beast in you,
Your love that never ends,
Am the beast in you,

The child you carried close to your bosom,
A part of you that is wholesome,
All this I want to be and even more.

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
