Treasure Island

Before You


There was a time  
Before you 
But time didn't matter then
For it was not precious 
There was a place
Before you
But place meant nothing
For it was empty 
There was music
Before you
Music didn't sing to me
Sounds just dissipated 
There was soul
Before you
Soul was empty, waiting
To be filled
There was light 
Before you
It glowed weak
Flickering  
There was a world
Before you
It was cold and barren
With no life
There was love
Before you 
But I was mistaken
For you are love

    Oblivious to the past that was before you-
    You are my Now, My future, My Everything...
    Before You... I didn't exist.

    You see... How your words inspire me? Great Ink here, You passion and love are constants.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
