Treasure Island

Russell Nero

(May 25th,1995)

For You, I Will

I am nothing...nothing...nothing
I am nothing but human
just an ordinary human
I can't whistle, perform great feats of strength
I have noddle arms at best
Magic eludes me like a game of hide and seek
Painting, drawing, creativity
well let's just say I'm an expert at tracing
yet I'm tracing these words not from a book
from my heart
For you my love, you are worth it
for you my love, I would walk 1000 miles
if it meant I could just see you
for you my love, I would swim the seven seas
surf a sea turtle if I must
if it meant I could have one simple kiss
one simple glimpse of your lips curving into a smile
For you my love, I would scream from a rooftop
in hopes you would hear my plea to marry me
For you my love, I would kill..him
him who took your life...him who stole your breath
with a deadly needle
but instead I take not revenge
but instead I take not hate
for you my love, I place the pink tulips
I planted in your backyard
upon your grave
shed a tear in response to your silence
in response to the remnants of your voice fading into the breeze
For you my love...for you my love...
I whisper I love you and promise to see you soon
for you I will cause I am nothing...nothing...nothing
nothing but human without you

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
