Treasure Island

Emily Casbourn

Deep Down

Deep down
You know it is there
The true colours
You hide them well
You're a masked figure
Not ever wanting to show the true you
Everyone waits to see if you will
It doesn't happen though
Day after day
I wait for the colours
I show mine over and over
You just watch
I don't get why you don't show yourself
Just show yourself to me please
It drives me mad
It drives others mental
I have known you for a while
But in the end still don't know you
Show your colours now
For me before I leave your side
I can't do this
It is time I leave
This time don't follow me
You won't get me back
I am done
At least until you prove you can show them
Show me your colours
I have shown mine
Just surrender to me
Show me your true self
Stop hiding yourself
I will see them
Just wait and see
I will one day you will show me
I will wait until then
I will wait just for that day
When you open up your heart
When you show those wondrous colours

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
