Treasure Island

Sebastien St. Fellmore


M.J. Une


performances candle-lit
practiced and practiced the outbursts and sobs
the short, little gasps solidify the act
fell again and again for it

beautiful heaven
hidden by beautiful eyes
it's terrible how hard i try

explanations and confessions
pace back and forth, anxious and scared
secrets built up against the door
revelations in tension

beautiful heaven
hidden by beautiful lies
it's terrible how hard i tried

romantic lost lovers
calling out in psychic beckoning vibes
answered on the phone by absence and static
busy now under the covers

beautiful heaven
hidden by beautiful lies
it's terrible how hard i tried

    poemhunter doesn't let us put spaces at the front of stanzas as written. why? poetry is in the presentation as well as the substance.....ask e.e. cummings.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
