Treasure Island

Erin Massiello

(August 1987 / Connecticut)

If I could


If I could
I would
But I can't
So I will shut my mouth
And bite my tounge
I will smile
I will laugh
I won't show you my anger
The anger I have
Towards you

Please beware
I can only take this so long
Before I burst
So I will open my mouth
And allow my voice to scream
I will hate
I will kill
My anger will come out
Maybe a little to extreme
But I have to release it
To allow myself to feel better

I am looking down
Down at your grave
With a sad smile
I allowed myself to hate
Allowed myself to kill
I will cry
I will pray
I've commited a crime
Because of my anger
I feel better
I am not angry anymore

My mind may feel better
But my heart is in pain
I did something awful
So I will pray
And hope my sins are forgiven
I will hate again
I will kill again
My heart won
My mind lost
Now I'm dead

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
