Treasure Island

Joseph Orton

(22-11-1994 / England)

Dead & Gone... So Long!

I exist,
In a decaying abyss.
With nothing but,
Eerieness and mist.

Darkness overshadows,
The lights and all its hallows.
For nothing brings the light,
When I am blinded by sight.

Murder and rape,
Something I don't wish to recreate.
But its all in eye view,
And it isn't just a few.

For the world as we know it,
We hide to not show it.
Is something quite grotesque,
Like an ugly mistress.

We know there is no hope,
So we gather the rope.
Noose our selves up,
Higher and higher up.

All our loved ones together,
Dying slowly forever.
Just to prove a point,
That this world is a burnt out joint.

Ashes and rubble,
Suffocated in a nearly bursted bubble.
Lost and never found,
Never to breath another sound.

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,
