Treasure Island

Tina Chan


An ill feeling
Consumes oneself
Dwells within inner self
The bottle explodes
We all hark on something or someone

I hated your snide comments against me
I hated how you continuously disrespect me
I hated how you never communicated with my family
I hated the fact you never Yum Cha with me or with my family
I hated how you never have an interest in the Chinese culture or learn Cantonese
I hated you for assaulting me

I hated your continuous lies over the years
I hated you for abandoning me while you freely roam in Tokyo
I hated your insults against me
I hated how you terribly failed to ameliorate
I hated how you exceedingly made our relationship deteriorate
I hated your dangerous, violent ill temper

I hated myself for believing in us
I hated myself for putting a roof over your head
I hated myself for going the extra mile of 110%
I hated myself for wasting ten years with you

Yet I turn the hatred to love
I love you for severing ties
Acceptance is the first step to a new chapter
Resolved to closure
I let go

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,
