Treasure Island

Uriah Hamilton


Did Kate Moss Ever Write Poetry?


The poet dies
In the perfumed night.
Every metaphor
Passing away
Into the infinity of silence
Should be embalmed;
I’m alarmed
That love never survives
After spring flowers
Fade into autumn!

    Again you trigger a chain of thoughts by highlighting fine details and smudging others.. Dreamlike (Report) Reply

    There's no infinity of silence with you ever, is there? A great read that leaves me wanting more but knoweing that the rest of it is up to me. Thanks for this one, Uriah. (Report) Reply

    I think you have such a gift of ''almost'' giving the reader a clear picture of what you mean but then blowing a beautiful fog over reality so it's just out of our grasp...left to our own imaginations. I think this is beautiful Uriah. It's interesting how even the night is perfumed in the eyes of a poet that is dying....very nice. sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    For some reason people feel the need to have sex the first day they meet, with no time in there for the love to bloom, for a true courtship, and the poet may truly be dead. How very sad, but how well you express it! Scarlett (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem, Uriah. It lingers in the mind like a gentle, half-forgotten tune.
