Treasure Island

Ellirie Aviles


From the places I had been
and the rain that I felt
from the loneliness that conquers my soul
that leads to darkness,

yeah! I did have friends,
I did have someone to share some
of my loneliness.

But why is it said
that my friends does wear mask
and the loneliness I own does not decrease
but increase

I did believe on them,
but as long as they haven't proven anything yet,
as long as they haven't shown me something yet
that belief starts to fade...

From the narrow path that
I had passed through the fire in my soul,
the fear in my heart and the poison
in my brain that keeps telling me that I'm nobody.

No one understand me, they told me I'm weird
for I have my own principles.
Some were ironic to theirs or
I mean my belief does have its own path and so as me.

In this class I entered and so
as previous ask them and me
and the answers definitely the same.

From the week I started, I showed nothing
the second week, I showed something
in the third week, I showed a lot of things
and in the fourth week, I showed nothing
again but as the second week passed
I will try and I will do show everything I got!
But the second week never came yet
the flow of time was constant and the
the sequence of events are in cycle.

    When you pass from the fire in your soul to the poison in your brain through the fear in your heart, you take the readers along with you. Then you begin to roam in some personal recesses where we get a bit hit. Cheers! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
