Summer Song

Rookie (July 13,1991 / Indiana)

Devoured by your imagination

Left in your room all alone
A lone soul...
whose only company is the dark casting shaddows

They exsist in your mind
but your eyes see them still
You lay in you bed completely silent

You listen intently
you hear a tap... tap... tap
you hands are tensed as they sit in your lap

You are laying in bed, you hear a creeaaak
you look around the room in the corner of your eye...

And...BAM! it gets you..
But what was it that caused your ruin?

Only the one who lies awake in bed would know...
because darkness makes one's imagination grow.

The thing that devoured the man that night
was only his own shear fright.

His fright sneaked up to his door
and started tap..tap..tapping on his floor

It then opened the door with a long creeaaak
as it went over to the man whose bravery was weak

So it's very simple you see
don't let your imagination eat you...
as it does me

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
