Treasure Island

Darkness


All these thoughts are private,
Not to the world will I display,
Sad ramblings of a broken mind
Left searching for a way.
 
Love's kindness did I throw aside,
whilst delving in the dark.
Now  for'er myself I'll chide,
The lost secret of your heart.
 
'Twas in the ignorance of youth
My confidence was lost;
And with it faded all the truth
Of beauty, warmth and lust.
 
Now I sit here all alone,
Missing that glorious throne
Of softness, strength, love unbound
In which fulfilment's found.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
