Treasure Island

Romeo Della Valle

(Ageless / Dominican Republic)


Today, I find myself
Falling in love again,
Not realizing that
After my last fall,
A fool I remained!
Many dreams truncated,
Thoughts frustrated
And a love boat that
Capsized long ago!

The wheel of changes
I can't possibly stop
Or revive my etching past
But now I am trapped
In a typical dilemma
With the same question
Once again raised:
Is it this time real love
Or another silly game?

Now, at this point of time,
When my body is altered,
My mind already exhausted
And my heart healed but aged,
I can't afford anymore
In my tormented life
To miss one more chance
Of meeting my soul-mate,
Perhaps, before it is too late!

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
