Treasure Island

Pete Rivera

(A special place)


From the fire
I turn away my head
No ashes cover me
Ashes cover me

The people stare
As I write my thoughts
In a little yellow book
Little yellow book

The mirror smiles
It sees your face
I want to be
A little more afraid
Cuz I won't look back
Are you gonna look back?

Strike me down
I couldn't care less
I hold my hand
Closer to yours

Move in for the kill
You have the blade
My heart is here
For you to tear
Don't be afraid
Never be afraid

I want to be
With you
Don't you see?
Bountiful lies

Nothing else surprises
Nothing else shows me
I follow through
A little lesson
Gonna think this through

Jesus, when do they end
I'm tired of waiting
Just take me now
And be done with it
Cuz the way it is
Will never be
The way I want it to

    Honestly, I just wrote this poem from the top of my head. In about 3 minutes. So, however you interpret this poem is entirely up to you, friend =) I'm not even sure how to interpret it. (Report) Reply

    Who wants to do the killing or cutting of the flesh. Is it you contemplating this, or the person metioned in the poem? This was the part I failed to get. maybe I did not give the poem a good reading.You tell me!

    This is good.There are some good lines here and some moments of emotion covered up in light languge giving the situation that this piece tells or describes.

    The best to you! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
