Treasure Island

Jared Bradford

(5/4/92 / Michigan)


Every nights the same
I can't even explain
Maybe cause there's no words
No combination of letters
Nothing I can really say to take away the pain
I'm just wasting my time
But, it's the early morning shoot
What else do I have to do?
What am I trying to prove?
Even when I do
Where then will be my next move?
My head's so lost, so un-found
What I write is so profound.
That doesn't solve anything
Sometimes I think writing builds up my sorrow
Please, if you don't mind, happiness,
Some can I borrow?
Early AM, it's already tomorrow
Duties undone yesterday, lie now in today
My heads like a balloon
In this room, it's filled with helium
I might just float this ceiling, um
Please someone get a stick
Or a needle give my head a little prick
Then suck up my thoughts
Till my head size goes down
Then say then in a silly voice
So I hear how stupid they really sound
I'm coming down, from the planets and the sun
Hit the ground, now it's time to run

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
