Treasure Island

Mary Rowena

Blood Money

You crossed the river sticks, but it wasn't enough,
The waves have now taken you away
You did the unthinkable, and joined me on the other side
Freedom, at last, freedom
Caught up in the arms of a beautiful woman
You painted a beautiful picture
Two identical faces, carved by the angels
But a wrath so dark trailed underneath
To give what you could never receive was the thought that kept you alive
Ironic, isn't it, that it’s the reason you have died
What made you selfless made you selfish
But you really meant no harm
Only joy and riches were your intentions, for your loved ones such as I
One and twenty days, and the pictures colours begin to fade
A bright light approaches-
Blood Money
So leave this world, and leave me nothing but this gold heart chain
This gold heart chain I wear like a noose around my neck
I’ll let your death strangle me, with the last piece of your blood money.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
