Treasure Island

Kathryn Garner

(May 10,1991)

i dont know what to call it

i have become entangled
inside my empathy
which has in turn, strangled
my love, my life, to tragedy
but when i turn to care
i cant stand but give a blank face
for i know its not fair
that you have left me here,
dying in this decietful place
i am consumed by sorrow
and now theres noone beating down the door
and as i look toward tomorrow
i dont see the sunrise anymore
ive become all ive ever feared
and as you set me free
you find im not what i appeared
to either you or me
now i can take a sorrow
and beat it dead
but it always rises for this disgusting tomorrow
and i know this as i lie in bed

    cheer up. when you lose a love one, it is like missing a bus, wait long enough and another one will be by in ten min. love is good and love is bad. this was a good write and it is good that you can write about it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
