Treasure Island

It is nothing

It is nothing
It is nothing
But it stirs the calming sea

It doesn't mean anything
It doesn't mean anything
But it brings the wave of despair

It just shadow
It just forgotten nightmare
It just sorrow
It just an aching wound 

It just doubt
It just a coward whisper 
It just cold
It just sliding cliff 

It is nothing
It is nothing
But it grips my beating heart

It may not be something
It may not be something
But it clouds my darkness mind

It just regret
It just blind disappointment
It just lost
It just improper goodbye

It just smoke
It just heavy breathing
It just lead
It just swaying mood

It is nothing
It is nothing
But it shakes the growing faith

It will not be everything
It will not be everything
But it creeps my deepest fear

It just turmoil
It just slightly misunderstanding
It just selfishness
It just constricted proprioception 

It just foreboding 
It just bad turning
It just horror
It just sick revelation

It is nothing
It is nothing
But it paints the crumbling wall

It could be many thing
It could be many thing
But it sticks me to the very corner

It just ignorance
It just stupid mistake
It just defiance
It just dangerous spot

It just denial
It just crowded anxiety
It just uncertainty
It just dread wandering 

It is nothing
It is nothing
But it clinging like poisonous mud

It would never become a thing
It would never become a thing
But it cracking my perfect mask

It just whining
It just the edge of patience
It just insecurity
It just the tip of insanity

It just annoyance
It just gnawing disturbance
It just stubbornness 
It just meaningless competition

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
