Treasure Island

May Namoc

(January 24,1994 / Cagayan de Oro, Philippines)

Numb


Your light faded in the distance
your left to not exist
my starry night turn black
the air is not so crisp

i'm sucked back in this numbness
been in limbo too many times
being punished for my actions
my feelings are left behind

i'm swallowed in the darkness
left to think these dreadful thoughts
swirling through a haze of nothing
actling like i had a shot

no idea of how to feel
from shock to deep sadness
i'll give this night alone for tears
then no more shall be shed

    An emotional poem for emotionlessness.

    i'm swallowed in the darkness
    left to think these dreadful thoughts
    swirling through a haze of nothing
    actling like i had a shot

    no idea of how to feel
    from shock to deep sadness
    i'll give this night alone for tears
    then no more shall be shed

    These two stanzas are deep and sad......... deserves 10.

    Best Wishes

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,
