Treasure Island

Crying on death row


If you ever see me again
I maybe crying on death row
frightened there's maybe,
no more us 'again' tomorrow…

O if you ever see me again
You'll maybe just hear
a howling, sirens, wail…
as I hit this here 'panic button' here!

Somewhere deep inside my heart
these ifs are like a sharks fin…
cutting silver circles in…
a bloody field of love:

O I'm seeing visions of you
O where to begin; when, I see
ghostly reflections of kiss and tell
of all the things, we use to do.

Love, I'm in a prison cell…
I'm drowning in a sea the depth of hell…
Listening to those lonely, echoes
of a conch shell…
calling me like a proud seahorse home!

O I'm seeing visions of you
O I'm seeing visions of you
O where to begin; when, I see
ghostly reflections of kiss and tell
of all the things, we use to do.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
