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 Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
