Treasure Island

Empath In flames

(29.08.1985 / Australia)

[Artemis, The Hunt...]


There’s something in your eyes.
A glimmer of hope,
Towards my malicious spinning lies.
You smile as you stare,
At a part of me
Enraging the animal,
That I can not see....

You’ll hunt for me,
I’ll run from you...
I’m loosing all control,
Please do not take my soul...

As you run through the trees,
I feel the disease.
Of a tainted jagged Dart,
As it splits into seams.
Of my bitter poisoned dreams.
I bleed in black,
From this terminal beating heart.

You’ll hunt for me,
I’ll bleed for you.
Your loosing all control,
Please do not rape my soul...

As I dropp to the ground,
Of waking hidden sounds.
I try to crawl away,
But it appears to be to me
That my pain will set me free.
The bear in death,
Will only care.
Of the man he used to be.

To understand,
That this running fate.
Was not infused
In order to hate

But in more ways then one
To realise...
A woman is not just a mate...

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
