Treasure Island

Ananda Alves

(November 8th.1983 / Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

Cliché Love

Your absence consumes me so hard
Just hard as your unbearable presence

Your eyes give me confort when they follow me
But they follow me so constantly your stares look haunted

Your hands provide me great pleasure
Yet it's so deep that makes me want to crush you

Your body is my safest place to hide
However it hides me so much I can easily get lost

Your love drives me crazy
So crazy it makes me hate you

You know me so well that you own me
But here's my payback: I know you in the same way
And guess what? It makes us even
(even more in love)

    This is a wonderful poem Ananda. Certainly a pleasure to read it. I love how you present the conflict of love and hate... How one thing can be good and at the same time... consuming or over whelming. Keep up the good work. This poem is terrific.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
