Treasure Island

Elisia Diaz


I crouch behind a bush
my heart is racing fast
I can't get rid of the memories
I can't run away from the past

The shadow passes over me
and I hear a heart wrenching sob
I realize the cry is mine
and my head starts to throb

My past is holding me captive
I just want it to let me go
The past always creeps up behind me
It's as silent as winter snow

But I can be free! they always say
Though they never tell me how
I feel like my mind's
been run through with a plow

I feel like my mind's been shattered
I believe I'm going insane
Am I even human?
But then I feel a searing pain

To remind me I'm still human
to remind me I am real
that in order for me to be free
I must give myself time to heal

My mind can only take so much
I feel tears run down my face
I must slow down my racing heart
I must heal at a reasonable pace

Suddenly I feel great warmth
the sun shines upon the ground
I find myself with new hope
as it sparkles all around

    Hi. I could find different themes in your poem, like searching for freedom, pain and the final one is hope. I just didn't get the reason for pain. I'd be glad to see your comments on my poems. Thanks (Report) Reply
