Treasure Island

Robert L. Bixler III

(February 14,1985 / Tulsa, Oklahoma)

Love


A thousand grains of sand
In time I’ll understand
The way I also sacrifice
Myself to be so nice

I listen to the waves crash
On me, girls never mash
I watch an orange flare
I’m left with my despair

By myself on a beach
With another girl out of reach
My heart bleeds to the moon
Someday, maybe one day, soon

I’ll find myself with another
My heart will beat with the other
We will lay in the sand
Our presence will be the demand

As the moon chases the sun
I mimic in my earthly run
The sun sets, the moon’s alone
Solitary in the sky, loneliness known

The beloved light reflected away
“Go man” is all I could say
As I gave my light away
Maybe another, another day

By myself on a beach
With another girl out of reach
My heart bleeds to the moon
Someday, maybe one day, soon

I’ll find myself with another
My heart will beat with the other
We will lay on the sand
Our presence will be the demand

Moon sets, black night sets in
My nightly demon’s torments begin
I sit on soft beach sand
Waiting for the day I’ll understand

By myself on a beach
With another girl out of reach
My heart bleeds to the moon
Someday, maybe one day, soon

I’ll find myself with another
My heart will beat with the other
We will lay in the sand
Our presence will be the demand

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
