Treasure Island

Dolan Doran

(June 24 1993.)

hope


Hope.
The demon of my dreams.
The pain in my heart
You bring me up, make me think things may work out
Then when all is well
You dropp me.
Hard
On concrete
In hell
Alone
Hope is no more then
You-
You show me your hand,
hold it out
tell me to let go and grab on to you.
Then
You
draw back.
and let me
Fall
hard
on my face
bleeding
alone
with no hope.
with no chance
and you leave.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
