Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Like A Fish Out Of Water


Absent is the mind: but not my nostalgic heart
I think with my heart: mind and heart miles apart
The rule of law a must for society’s civil order
Give me love for my daily chaotic disorder

Not a rioter burning and slashing tires
But deep feelings within burst with poetic fires
Sleepless nights in awe and wonder
Stoking the heavenly loud thunder

Love me and leave me, love me again
Leave me once more and parade my pain
It has been said to love once better that not
To love at all like a fish out of water caught

I celebrate the whole of my bruised pride
My merry go round dizzying human ride
What is one more dagger piercing my heart?
At least I loved and in return boredom fell apart

Ah the poet never gets tired from dwelling on old themes
What is old for some is new in my revolving dreams
Yes to dreams in the plural to love many times over again
The price of pain is far less from what the heart has to gain

In this spirit I dedicate this poem to all hearts broken
From love unrealized and quietly to the hurt unspoken
I am an old soul who has travelled this road many times
At the end it is the journey that makes my heart climes

Love me and leave me, love me again
Leave me once more and parade my pain
It has been said to love once better that not
To love at all like a fish out of water caught

I celebrate the whole of my humbled pride
My merry go round dizzying human ride
I welcome one more dagger piercing my heart!
At least I loved and in return boredom fell apart

Words are made to be used abused and misused
Why not bemused my stanzas with as many as I choose
Like many void love affairs with a definite check –out time
Lesson learned I'll wait for her, the one true perfect rhyme!

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,
