Treasure Island

BladesongRaven Gehrig

(4-2-1982 / fae land)

birthday poem.........


altogether hanging on crosses
of our own makings,
martyrs to there rising suns,
a thousand tears now making up the ocean i am drowning in,

with no will to be rescued
i am not a damsel in distress,
no only a girl,
whose mascara runs to mark the time,
days and hours
where footsteps alone stood,

bearing her goddesses n gods,
up the treacherous hills of,
passing years, n unkept promises,
safe in there jars n trinkets littered
across her gypsy's room,

like a treasure treast,
a dragons lair of nights spent unalone,

the fear passing in and out with
the essential and easy act of breathing,

1 more birthday candle lit,
another year of things yet new,
a wish to be counted and placed,
wherever wishes go,

a prayer of thankfulness to friends and family,
n enough drinks to forget this day exists,
the shock of life that passes itself,
in tears of outrage n fear,
even as at this moment another child passes from its mothers womb....

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
