Treasure Island

June FeirCruz

Clarity Came Calling

Exhaustion was my middle name last night
Sleep was my long lost best friend
Rest was beckoning me, begging me for a chance
Finally, my soul and my body gave in.
In my dreams, CLARITY spoke:
If you love him, you must trust him'
And if your worst fears are true, that he is sleeping with her behind your back.
Realize that: His transgressions are his and not yours.
And her transgression is that, she does not love nor respect herself
And that is the worst transgression of them all.

    I particularly liked the use of language, the flow of ideas, the construction. You took me from sleepless frustration to realisation and on to quietness of mind in a few short but beautiful lines. Thank you again for another gem June! (Report) Reply

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,
