Treasure Island

Emma English

(19 January 1991 / Cairns, Queensland Australia)

I sat there in silence


I tryed to say something
But I just sat there in silence
I sat there thinking about you
But I just sat there in silence
My words wouldn't come out of my mouth
But still I sat there in silence
My eyes are tearing up
I can't hardly see
But i sat there in silence
Trying to say something to you
What shall i do?
I'm trying so hard to remember
But still i'm picturing you
I can't hardly breathe
I tryed to laugh but it turned into a cough
but some how i found you
I seem to get my voice back
And that was how I found you
after all this time

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,
