Treasure Island

Joshua Dinkin

(March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)

Emptiness


In my lonely bed I lie,
Dreaming of your tender kiss,
And rolling over with a sigh,
I cannot help but reminisce.

Your touch is what I miss the most,
Your hand upon my cheerful face,
But as of now you are a ghost,
Passing through this weary place.

The moon is showing high above,
So pale and stagnant, full of gloom,
Reminding me that my true love
Is nowhere in my darkened room.

If demons did exist, and hell
Was more than just a state of mind,
I’d fight with fury to expel
The anguish that has left me blind.

I hope one day the pain is gone,
And your love cools my troubled heart,
And thereupon some humble lawn
Our time of innocence can restart.

But in my lonely bed I lie,
Lost inside this black abyss,
And rolling over with a sigh,
I cry into the emptiness...

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
