Lone Island - Poem by Allen Steble

trapped on a lone island
insanity on a lone island
drunk with salt water
sick with salt water
prison with no guard
waves crashing ashore
walls to swim through
on this lone island
trapped on a lone island

trapped on a lone island
insanity on a lone island
a thousand lonely stars
a million lonely nights
trapped by the waters bars
freed by the stars changing light
endless sky to stare and ponder
singing to the clouds above
trapped on a lone island

time circles like an eagle
high above around-around-around
insanity on a lone island
thoughts so loud, so broad
waves are clashing drums
echo in the ear so silent
hope is a distant light
bright in a dark deep eye
endless beach of white sand
singing to blue ocean grand
trapped on a lone island

trapped on a lone island
insanity on a lone island
laughing with the lonely trees
crying with the lonely rocks
motionless with an icy breeze
warm in thick cotton socks
sinking in the evening sand
singing to the passing wind
insanity on a lone island
trapped on a lone island

trapped on a lone island
insane on a lone island
