Treasure Island

Noah Body

I am humbled here

I am humbled here that is a fact
Such wonders here contained
To b granted the privilege
Of reading and experiencing
The works and emotions
So enchantingly expressed

I fear my dark writings
Do not belong
Among such wonderous prose
Shameful they are
The temptation to remove them
And find someplace else to keep them
Where they shall be hidden

I am embarrassed to leave them here

Amazingly awesome authors here thrive
Draw such wonderful pictures
Elicit intense emotions
Sometimes over powering
I could browse forever
If only madness and life
Would not intrude

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Not worthy of being named a poem but I had to express it. Only the beast is capable of driving rhyme and rhythm out of me and he's slipping off to hibernate today after haunting me for the last few weeks. I truly, honestly am in dread of having my trash read now after reading some of the awesomely amazing writings here. Wish I could make it all private. I really just want to preserve it.

    I saw a TV advert once that was so encouraging. A young woman is watching a ship come in. She is waiting for her best friend to arrive. When the young woman who has just stepped off the boat turns in the young woman's arms, you see the same face. Her friend is herself. I feel that about your poems. They show you care about yourself. As a poet and as a person who has suffered from schizophrenia, I applaud your gutsy poetry. (Report) Reply

    Words from your heart are wonderful, what more could a reader wish for, most of us feel humble when we read others work, I know I do, keep writing and sharing. (Report) Reply

    To me, a poem is freedom of your soul and mind to speak about things. You dont have to feel bad if they are awesome, i know i feel that too..but yours are sincerely from heart, we dont ask for fans to adore our work, we dont ask people to reading ours each time we post the poems, we just telling the side of our life, our smiles, our cries, our time and life, all around...that's a poetry got inside the words...yours are fine...sharing days in dark it's okay but we will make our writing to lead a life thinking when we do it even more if we reading it...a special thing about poetry_Soul (Report) Reply

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
