Treasure Island

One moment of a lifetime..


One moment consumed leisurely in vain,
one moment of misery and of pain.
One moment of caress, one moment of assault,
one moment to perceive and amend my fault.

One moment that stands an era above,
one moment that made us fall in love.
One moment of wreck, one moment forlorn,
one moment of parting left me all alone.

One moment of kinship that held us close,
one moment of severance that i loathe.
One moment of warmth and boundless love,
one moment that shattered all bonds of trust.

One moment of dreams and unborn hopes,
one moment of fancied visions to cope.
One moment of despair and solitude,
one moment that shook my life from roots.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
