Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

In darkness, in shadows


In darkness
I crept
In shadows
I crawl

In darkness
I wake
howling pointlessly
at the moon
dancing next to
a fire I made
to a fire
that brings me pride
and alone
I dance
with no one
to relish
in my act
of God

In shadows
I live
like a memory
invoked
by an act
of a stranger
or an object
similar
to a gift
I gave you
for the success
of your heart

In darkness
In shadows
as a recluse
I exist

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
