Treasure Island

BESIDES YOU


When the seas becomes desert
And a world with no expert
The corn fields as barren as granny
Your life sinking like the black pearl

With no hope or lap to cry on
Besides you i am as spirit

When your soul is married to loneliness
Under thunder lightening in darkness
In solitary saunter

Besides i am as shadow
Step by step like body and soul

When the world is bleak
With no honey to make it sweet

besides you i am as saccharine
To make it silky like margarine

When your heart sink
At thought of ill past, stink

Besides you i am as love
Ready to takeaway that pain
Even if i am to be slain
FOR my sacrifice is plain

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
