Treasure Island

Geirja Lulu


Once upon an afternoon,
Oh the silence I behold, this desperate moon,
Comes a fleeting ghost- never kind, never weary,
Oh the dreary of it all, as thoughts consumed me,
As I behold, the greater distance of it all,

Bold upon my courage, never thought of thoughts,
Just act of acts, and mistake of acts,
As I state my facts, only saying,
Turns the hearsay of facts,
Becoming false, and sorrow rises,

As the damage of mistakes- can never take it back,
I plead forgiveness, and I was given none,
Only silence like the void,
I plead for punishment, and I was given silence,
Only silence like the void,

I had no answer for my questions,
For questions they were not,
Gentle pleadings turning desperate,
Turning harsher than the harshest sand,
Sharper than the sharpest blade,

Now enduring silence, as life has drained me,
No more pain, as the final pain has risen,
No more life, no more sorrow,
Just the silence of the void,
Embracing eternal silence of the void.

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
