Treasure Island

Eric Gallagher

(May 9th,1991)

In the Dark Alley Romance Died


In the dark alley, romance died
Whimpered softly as the knife was drawn
Rested her tired head on the pavement
Waiting patiently for death to deliver her
From this cruel world

In the dark alley, romance died
He sat facing the sky
The stars like shimmering fragments
Of everything that once was

    You got my vote 10+, well-deserved, Love and Peace, Romeo (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
