Treasure Island

Katherine Lyczek


Death


You wish for something that shall come naturally..
Something mortal
beautiful
cruel..
i do not fear death,
but the ocean of the afterlife
the ocean of nothingness
absolute death
vast fields of bleak..
nothing
an eternity of this misery?
The purity of salvation?
what happened to the light?
where went the intense drive to survive?
have you lost your will as well?
i hope not...
is my complete and utter love to you incompetent? where shall i roam when you leave this Earth?
Nowhere,
for my soul is nothing without your pressence
and again,
you saved my life
that cold day you finally broke the gap of bone chilling silence between us..you brought me back,
alive
single handedly from the plans i held for the next day..
i suppose we are both lucky..
perhaps i might even venture to say.. blessed?
we were meant to be together..
in my heart at least,
this is true
hell, who knows?
perhaps your heart merely holds only lust for mine?
alas,
where does your lonely allegiance truly lay?
where must i draw the fate splitting line?
hah,
what a stupid question,
for the answer is never
obviously..
my love for you is too great,
to even think of leaving you while you still live
...
even if we are both ghosts of who we once were

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
