Treasure Island

No More Words, Show Me


Words slowly chip away
at the good that was
til they deaden a giving heart.

Plates piled high
with hurtful names,
or full of blame,
pointing angry fingers
with words.

(Clean up your plate,
must eat up the reasons,
all the reasons
why I had to change,
never you)

Finish lines moved
with more words.
I love you's thrown like confetti
as if your 'because' was real.

No more words.
If you love me,
show me.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
