Treasure Island

Mongezi Rocksy Mofusion


you who carries darkness beneath your wings with feathers that outshines the glense of star lights which blinds our naked eyes.

There you are! unseen lying between the cumulombuis making the sun your companion as you send your wrath upon us, claiming a life as if it was bequeathied unto you.
Death you parasite!
sucking the joy out of our lives, leaving us behind as empty as tunnels making the loudest noise in our own pool of tears.
have you no sympathy? have you no heart with conscious curled within it?

You are like an earthquake ready to open mother nature to chew and swallow our hearts, our souls and our last hope with nothing to live for, leaving us skeletons roaming the earth with no aim, no purpose but raw pain to live with.
i could wait for the night sun, stand on the highest peak and point to the darkness as if it was you, and man i could swallow my pride curse you hard that i forget who raised me but since i know who i am and i was taught well, i'll hold it inside and settle my vandatta after i have waken up from my death bed.

Oh Death, how you had us all fooled, cowardly sneaking behind closed curtins, with no sound made, silently taking like a thief in the night, then disappearing to the far distance with eyes and ears left behind just to see us weep and curse.

I could point and drown you with words as i please but my questions will be unanswered.

I would love to believe you are not heavenly sent, but as HE gave he shall take back.

you who caries darkness beneath your wings.

    Beautifully written. I love the theme of death, and it is a tragic thing. However, it is also a part of life and he touches us all. Well done! (Report) Reply

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
