Treasure Island

rains of bloom


Cigarettes


I hear your voices
in the cold empty streams
and see your face in mirrors,
i look for you
but can't find you
your an optical illusion.

I feel your presence beside me
and feel the sturdiness of your palm
I smell the tobacco that consumed you,
and watch as mothers cry
from loss of love and ambition.

I see you in graveyards
coming to haunt the dead
and coming to demoralize the living.
I see you beside tombstones,
hearing echoes in my head.
Its like you have something to say to me
but you can't,
because your DEAD.

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
