Treasure Island

My Inanimate Best Friend

You're always there for me
When I'm held captive by sadness
You set me free
When my rage is about to explode
You calm me like a scenic road
When I'm with you
Nothing else matters
But when I'm not...
I feel as crazy as ten mad-hatters
I need you to keep me alive
I am the bee... and you are my hive
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But I know all my feelings for you are in vain
You can't see me
You can't hear me
Let alone feel me...
Yet when i hold you in my hand
I feel dizzy as if i can't stand
Your edges are smooth and sharp
If I wanted to..
I could use you to cut open my fucked up heart
My feelings of desire and longing
Are for an object i should be loathing
It is my razor I crave
My one way ticket to my grave

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
