Treasure Island

Miranda Van Yperen

(August 20,1996)

In Just Minutes


The sound of waves
Beat off the rock

In just minutes
My heart will stop

I won’t worry
About lack of breath

My life will be over soon
I smile at death

The water below
Looks so inviting

Although the storm approaching
With thunder and lightening

At least I had fun
And needless to say

I’m glad I met you
Before this day

That water beats hard
Against the rocks on the shore

I jump…
My life is no more

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
