Treasure Island

Garrett Bradley

Blind Love

I'm falling through the air
But I'm not sure why
I was flying high
And now I'm just carelessly floating
But I'm sitting on cloud nine
And everything seems perfectly fine

I see flashes of a face
They're blurry but clear enough to see that it was a woman
And I fall a bit faster
This is strange, but not worrisome
So I blindly drift into the abyss

I can see her now
She is a vision of pure beauty and finesse
Oh what I would do to just simply meet her
And now I fall faster
I'm nervous, but dauntless
The vision is comforting me

I'm falling at top speed now
The ground is closing in on me
And I recognize that I'm in danger
That the woman's charm and grace
Had shrouded me from realizing my imminent doom
Oh, how blind love can be so misleading

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
