Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


in the dark (today is the universe)


Promises
what sense do they make
It's better to live
like today is the universe
Disconnected days, weeks, months, years
they're all part of something
But not the same...

And in the dark, baby
I'll catch you off your guard
In the dark, baby
I'll win your fragile heart
In the dark, baby
Make sure you can't fight
In the dark, baby
And I'll steal you until it's light

Today is the universe
in the dark I know
Today is the universe
some nights we'll take it slow

In the dark, baby
I'll catch you off your guard
In the dark, baby
I'll win your fragile heart
In the dark, baby
Make sure you can't fight
In the dark, baby
And I'll steal you until it's light

A blanket of stars
a galaxy proven
What am I doing
and is it working
A hundred and one hopes
a universe fits into
one day
What am I doing

In the dark, baby
I'll catch you off your guard
In the dark, baby
I'll win your fragile heart
In the dark, baby
Make sure you can't fight
In the dark, baby
And I'll steal you until it's light

Yesterday was the Milky Way
tomorrow is something else
I don't know what
But today is the universe
live it like we make it

In the dark, baby
I'll catch you off your guard
In the dark, baby
I'll win your fragile heart
In the dark, baby
Make sure you can't fight
In the dark, baby
And I'll steal you until it's light

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
