Treasure Island

Cierra Lauren


Tears fall to create words on page
As my heart bleeds regret, can't help but think of you
We consist of hollow chests and empty hearts just looking to find peace
We intercept one another
Like perpendicular railroad tracks
Except this time we merge
Our bodies were clay molding into whatever we wanted to be
Our minds puzzle pieces
Connecting perfectly
Filling in the parts we missed
Tears salty with emotions cleansed me of all insecurities
Our truth stained with the lies of our identities
We think like Half-minded persons
Our perfectly connecting puzzle pieces
Sanded down by imperfections
We no longer connect
We are perpendicular again
We love with different charges
So we attract like magnets
Once again our bodies mold themselves
Into whatever we wanted to be
Our minds a part of the others
And once again I'm you

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;
