Treasure Island

font color='brown'bThoughts in between....


Blank paper and a pen
Stark white,
staring back at me
But what am I supposed to write?
Sitting here trying to bring back memories
Of people, places, and dreams
Causing misery and apathy
not the other way around.

I belong in between the pages of the epic poem
Not the sonnets or the limericks
I must belong there,
somewhere.....

    not in between the pages
    but as a title cover--
    your outlook in life has to change
    so that your personality reflects
    the persona of the title of the poem
    whatever

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
