Treasure Island

Moments Of Non-Existence


Feeling regret, ruing decisions of past mistakes,
hoping to change life for the better.
Soul-touching sorrow brings me to my knees, yet
I can't seem to pray for hope as I lie in misery
day after day.
Where can life go from here, but deeper into the
mires of saddened destiny, taking life with it's
force into deep despair.
No longer looking for tomorrow, only this moment
is focusing me onto the grief-stricken deserts
of my interior mind.
There are no more steps to take, I will be
forgotten as I now contemplate my death in moments
of non-existence forever tonight.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
