Treasure Island

Dawn Michelle

(8/3/91 / Van Nuys, California)

Here I Am (Captivating)

I feel myself breaking
And falling down into
I know my heart can’t take anymore
Crying is pointless but so is

Yet here I stand
In front of your eyes
So paralyzed
Am I
And here you are
So close yet so
Out of

Ice cold blood
I feel it run through my
I hear it now
The sound so captivating
‘I’m here, I’m here’
I call into the
No response
Except the beat of my

Here I stand
On the edge of
Absolutely nothing
Yet here you are
Mouthing my name
Beckoning softly from the depths
Of the

A winding road
And a beaten
My eyes scan
This land you call
I see nothing to
Hold my attention
Nothing beautiful
To say the
I see all the shadows
I watch them rise up
Out of your

Here I am
Rising to nothing
Yet calling to something
And here you stand
So close yet I can’t feel
So far away
And I’m touching

‘Here I am, here I am’
Don’t look through
Those lonely eyes
I long to fall in
I long to survive
I need to survive
Help me survive

And here I stand
In front of your eyes
So paralyzed
Am I
And here you are
So close yet so
Out of
You have my heart
Though yours I’ll never have
To keep

Here I am
Here I’ll stay
Here you are
Stay for as long as needed
And I wont run
I wish I was
As captivating
As you
Now I’ll stay with those shadows
Stay with your shadows

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
