Treasure Island

Amir Foroughi



Again no remorse or sorrow
No scream of butterflies for tomorrow
No words of motion
No glances of emotion
Trace of hope is the felon despise
Oceans of tears growing in eyes
Steeped in freedom of loneliness inside
No god here to relive to subside
Strings of heart torn
By strings of music fires to be born
The tranquil chaos in the rain
Laying naked under arrows of sustain
Oh on the lap of hell
To go in the alleys with a broken bell
Live is to try harder
To get lost farther
At last to fail
To look at death and blissfully hail
Hail death
Adieu life

    Nice job, I love it's rhyme.Adieu life? why? where is the place of HOPE in your poem? or TELEOLOGY, ONTOLOGY, EPISTEMOLOGY? believe that such a life is aimless.

    We never see how around pull us below to underground but we deny the things when we up to the sky.... creating boundary between freedom and caged, confusing your soul to stay in body or move without physical, never doubt this poem so sharply hit the note on poetry keys but in hope of full of black, pain and things to torture...break the air that you breathe now, and in another dimension you should enter...where the the pain and happy in balance intensity..we will never feel good if we used to be in we stay in dark and blame the room for the dark, go out collapse the wall let the sunshine in tp reach your skin..Lovely right but need more spirit to fight..talented to kill fearfulness_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
