Campus


The college campus holds my fear
Staring down as I draw near
Tall, foreboding, scraping the sky
You can’t escape it if you try

The halls; the belly of the beast
Swarm with people, to say the least
A tunnel of eyes piercing my heart
Scrutinising; tearing apart

I’m the loner in the crowd
Unconcealed by fear’s dark shroud
Trapped inside these prison walls
Of the campus and its halls.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
