Treasure Island

Despair


This despair drowns me,
Like night smothers the light,
Yet still like angels eyes stars promise,
Promise relief in my final measure,
The poison tears my throat,
Like acid eating my flesh,
Hope enevolpes me in its light,
The smell of death creeps to me,
Reminding me of a summer nights breeze,
Enticing with it thoughts,
A night in my lovers arms,
But death now is my lover,
Hope amoung despair,
Despairs only relief is in deaths unjudging care.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
