Treasure Island

Ray Hansell

(New Jersey)

It Was Never Mine


The smile has left me face
My heart wears a scar
I will no longer ever see
The beauty of a falling star

Sadness rules my day
From morning until dark
Inside I no longer feel
The magic of loves spark

I'm not sure what happened
Or where I went wrong
I use to be a rock
But I'm no longer that strong

To me love seems like a burden
That I carry all the time
The one thing that's for sure
Is that love was never truly mine

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
