Treasure Island

Justin Reamer

(2 October 1993 / Holland, Michigan)


Insanity embraces them both,
Whether they like it or not;
They fail to realise the signs
That are right in front of them.

In all honesty, it is very amusing,
To see them do what they do,
Whether it's averting her gaze
Or a conspiratorial whisper,
I cannot help but laugh.

They fail to realise that
I am in love with the seraph,
And they fail to realise
That my feelings for them are gone.

One speaks in conspiratorial whisper,
Hating my presence,
And I cannot help but recall freshman year,
When she did the same thing again.
I cannot help but laugh,
For she ignores the signs,
For I don't feel for her anymore;
I feel for the blond-haired seraph.

The other is a resultant of fear;
One who looks at me fearfully,
And then averts her gaze;
And it's the same thing that happened
Sophomore year, only a year ago,
When she did the exact same thing.

I cannot help but laugh as well,
For she fails to realise the signs;
I walk past her with the seraph every day,
And she fails to recognise who she is,
And she does not even notice how
I even tend to behave with her,
Or even my behaviour around her.
I cannot help but laugh at her
Own version of reality,
The one where I'm the bad guy,
Or the villain, as a matter of speaking.
I cannot help but laugh.

They both are delusional in
Their own perceptions,
For they fail to recognise the truth,
And they fail to recognise where
My true feelings lie, if anything.
And this is why I laugh,
Amused at the very sight.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
