Treasure Island

Kevin Patrick

(Taurus / Ontario)

Fear is love

Hell is the face of the person you despise
And an expression of the race evolution crucified
Knowledge teaches us what morality calls shame
And who to persecute when we need to establish blame

Evil sleeps in the good, when they are tethered into the world
And awakens in the desperate when optimisms anorexic
All criminals are born in the same beds as your children
The only innocent are those bathed inside of Gods detention

Sleep is the peace that waken minds never find
Down half forgotten streams with no rudder to rewind
Being lost is experience learned from coldness of yearning
You�re stuck on the ocean with Red sky�s for sailors mooring

Fear is love
And love is god
Fear your god who loves your tears

Now I spy a voice that�s living in my home
She�s got the gaze of an infinite dark storm
I bury myself between the sheets of her dark lips
Hoping that tomorrow is somewhere between the hours next abyss

There's no faith I have accept the air I breathe
It chokes me with a clarity that contaminates my being
What you see is you, and the inventions of daily habits
Religion is an opiate that disciplines puritan addicts

Fear is love
And love is god
So Fear your god who loves your tears

Fear is love
And love is god
So Fear your god who loves your tears

Fear is love
And love is god
So Fear your god who loves your tears

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,
