Treasure Island

Kay Tee

It isn't like it used to be

It isn't like it used to be
There's no such thing as truth
They've all been abused too much
We face corruption of the youth
There's no such thing as peace
Within a persons mind
Because if you dig deeper 
Destructions what you'll find
Destruction  you've created
By digging up that hole
It doesn't even matter cause you've  captured a true soul 
Broken torn  and ruined
From burns of cigarettes
Getting high on rooftops
And life of no regrets
Giving it up easily 
You see and you want more
There's no such thing as innocence or trusting anymore
And what about plain friendship 
The one without the jealously 
The kind when youre like siblings 
And it isn't all in jeopardy 
Everyone is guilty of what is said above 
One more thing that breaks a heart
The power known as love 
Have you ever felt it?
Is it just a myth?
I could never tell you but I hear that it's a hit
A hit of pain
a sudden rush 
a bunch of lies 
that are too much
A bright long Burst of energy 
when I'm with him and he's with me
But there's no him..
And There's no me
And I'm not here
I am a dream
I'm dreaming that this will all pass by
You say time flies
I say time cries
If you saw within the tortured eyes
That make ones body paralyzed 
You'd realize why there's nothing left
A hint of dust 
A shortened breath
It very slowly disappears 
You're left there with your hopeless tears
It isn't like it used to be
There's no such thing as truth
Something has to rearrange
We have to change our youth.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
