Treasure Island

Mercy AnanehFrempong

(13th May,1981 / Accra)

Ice!


I’m freezing up
Turning to stone
Don’t wanna grow cold
But it’s raining ice
Torrents of icy molten lava
Raining on me
Pouring on my soul
Chilling my marrow
Killing my whole
Ice
Don’t wanna grow cold
But I take the dagger
And stab my heart
Twice
Thrice
Ice
Torrents of icy molten lava
Pouring on me
Raining on my soul
Killing my marrow
Chilling my whole
Ice
Don’t wanna grow cold
I dive into the toxic lake
Of cheating men
And fleeting lies
Ice
You’d think I’d be wise
Ice
It pours
This molten ice
Pours On my soul
Chilling my marrow
Killing my whole
Ice
Molten ice
Killing me twice
These lies
Ice!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
