Treasure Island

Falling


I'm falling from the sky
My heart burns and I don't understand why.
The life I lead is great,
Yet still I bleed from empty fate.
Where am I going?
Tell me of the seeds I'm sewing?
I ache with a pain
That threatens to stain.
Why do I cry,
When I feel like I want to fly?
Falling in an unknown pit of despair,
How terribly unfair.
I feel so low
Isn't my pain something I should know?
Something's missing
I'm having a hard time listening.
The heart desires
But I know not what it requires.
Pain filled cries
From where my suffering lies.
Where is that?
I feel like a rat,
Trapped in a maze,
Stuck in a daze.
How to escape
This unknown fate?
Hurt is not new
I've been there a time or two.
However the cause is usually known,
This time I'll have to find out on my own.
Free my from this hell! ?
For I know not how far I fell.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
