Treasure Island

Matthew Edan Oliver Palma

(February 2,1975 / Pateros, Rizal)

As you walk pass

My heart throbs
as you walk pass
Hoping for a glance
A moment in a chance
… but you never looked my way

my soul cries out
as you walk pass
hoping you would hear
know that I am near
… but you never turned my way

my mind grows numb
as you walk pass
why are you so cold?
Why can’ t I be bold?
Have all my words been taken?

Speak what'’ s in your mind
Spill what’ 's in your heart
And let our souls be mended

For I cannot bear the pain
This sorrow in the rain
Or let love die in silence

I looked at you
As you walked pass
Hoping you would know
Hoping you would feel
But still…..
You kept your silence.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
