Treasure Island

Russell Nero

(May 25th,1995)


With a head full of sand
from sinking in quicksand
I say things some might not approve of
They will know when I say the words
not to meant reach their ears
I have stared once again in crystal
and saw a glimmering star
it seemed so far
but only miles and states separate
yet it was a still screen that paused me
and teal blue eye shadow caught my attention
A name starting with a K
A three letter word rolling off the tongue so sweet
and that's all I know
I guess that's the mystery
why I'm interestingly intrigued
I could place compliments to the name
but should I dare
i could say enchanting for my attention is had
I could say frightening for a future untold
I could say I don't know
my words choke up in my neck
for I don't know what to say next
I could say hey
but silence rolls my way
in place relays her guardian angel
I held in my sights
in place relays her guardian angel
where I shared a still templed kiss
That's a haunting phase
a delicate interspace
but I write what's on my mind
and what's on my mind
is that her guardian angel
is now intertwined within another
but I have no room for another perfect storm
so here I stand
well sit mulling it over
but I shall say nothing, nothing
a name so sweet
a name but a mystery
guess I'll leave it be
and stare up into the sky
stare up into another crystal...
and...I don't know

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
