Treasure Island

Alice Kling


going down


crush crush
your going down
boom your out
cold
you wake up
and look around
you see fire
dancing
all around
and to look up
to a night
darker then
a world at war
you try to
walk but your
tied down
you see your hopes
and dreams are going by
you cant help but
ask why
you feel a sharp
pain in your chest
a light flashes by
you see your family
crying and asking
why your here
your trying to scream why but
no one can hear you
you start to vibrate
your family is screaming
DONT GO STAY WITH US
and all you can say is
I LOVE YOU ALL
they look at you
couse your dieing but
befor you died you told them
you love them
all they let you go
and you were happy
that they let you
go

    The ending is sad, I'll admit that at the beginning I had no idea where you were going with this but in the end, it was well written. I love how it allowed the person to tell her family she loved them before she died, allowing them to have something sweet before she left them behind.
