Treasure Island

Min Sia


This coldness tortures me
This melancholy oppresses me
This silence kills me
I can't cry
I can't laugh
Am I locked?
This darkness ruptures me
This dissonance inside me
Is there any one out there?
Am I too lost?
There's no wind whistling
No murmurs of the night
I'm blinded by these tears
And I can't stop the pain
Let me go
Let me be free
Let me hold my last breath
And change this soul within
For I'm dying here tonight
And all is unwritten

    Sharp and penetrating. The presentation in groups of 3 is very effective. You pick things that really can hurt: coldness, melancholy, and silence. Well done. Ben (Report) Reply

    everyone experiences fear, some worse than others, most if not all poets have written about this subject at some time or anothere and it can be hard to express true feeling about fear, one of the best pieces of advice i was told is to use fear to your advantage, harness it and let it move you forward rather than back, nicely expressed poem and dont forget to smile, it may not always feel the best but its for the best :) (Report) Reply

    Fear entwined with my tears
    jeers at my desires and hopes,
    Only God can free me from this
    suffocating rope.

It's very mean of Science
