Treasure Island

Ana Lia Zaldivar

(March 1,1994 / Honduras)


Fear loses when I am close to you,
when I forget about what is loneliness,
but lately you are the one I fear,
now the world is my nightmare.

I've lost the one who protected me,
from all the fear which could rule in me,
now I am exposed,
to my nightmare every night, and everyday.

I fear what you've done to me,
I fear that's true,
that it's not just a nightmare,
that's just my reality.

I fear for it to happen again,
I fear the pain that have grown in my heart,
I fear for it to get worst,
I fear for it to take me to an end.

I fear not to have you one more time,
for our dreams to disappear for once and for all,
I fear for what's happening now,
and I fear it's not just a nightmare.

    Great poem! I do believe that 'lonelyness, ' should be spelled, 'loneliness'.

    Yes-My spell checker has confirmed it. Always happy to help!

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
