Treasure Island

Everything You Have


I want everything you have,
If we are to share as mated lovers.
And with an ending to all suspense,
Commenced.
Like the doings of some others.

Worthless to me,
Are those spoken tokens of love.
In conversations intended,
To satisfy my craving on words alone.

Pointless it is and irrelevant to mention,
That a going through a motion...
Has been consistent.
I am persistent when I insist...
I want everything you have.
Including loyalty and love.
With a showing of known devotion.

I have consumed enough,
On reason without rhyme.
To await a purpose,
That did not feed my need.

Worthless to me,
Are those spoken tokens of love.
I want everything you have,
If we are to share as mated lovers.

Pointless it is and irrelevant to mention,
That a going through a motion...
Has been consistent.
I am persistent when I insist...
I want everything you have.
Including loyalty and love.
With a showing of known devotion.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
