Treasure Island

Even If My Heart Breaks


The grace in the sight
Emotions that stems
The sheer and the smile
Masking my regret

The hurt in silence
Absent any remorse
Lust borne in patience
Even hope seem void

The need to cry
The distance in space
A touch so benign
A stare that amaze

Life is a journey
Living is a grace
A sigh is brewing
Feeling so dazed

The heart that breaks
Fails in its dreams
A mind that frails
Is elusive of bliss

I love the moon
The sky was her first
I hate the mood
Love makes one thirst

The eyes that pry
Mine shares in fate
The moon is the sky's
He greets no debate

The heart in reprobate
A mind in gloom
Feelings with no rebate
Emotions in doom

Beauty borne in yonder
That meets no match
I stare and I wonder
Should such break my heart?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
