Treasure Island

s./j. goldner

(March 2nd,1984 / USA)

destructive


she’s a martyr
a prophet
a poet

but

she shattered her
future, her confidence, her courage.

he’s a hero
a lover
an idiot

but

he shattered his
future, his confidence, his courage

together
they shattered their passion.

    I can imagine the destructive forces behind our minds, like Ayn Rand said of the unbearable volition in our mind's that is found in the natural world and their power's fade, since in this poem the great prophet's can learn if not careful they can go astray from the true supernatural volition and melodrama.
