Treasure Island

Marijke McKinney


I look at you
And the picture you display
Is a reflection of my thoughts

I look at you
And you’re the epitome
Of lovely insanity
And I trail right behind you

When I look at you
I want to cry
We’re in the same boat
We can help each other stay afloat

We’re in the same boat
We can help each other stay afloat
All that you portray
Are my deepest secrets

A picture of you
Unravels all my layers
I’m just like you
And how I wrack out
All of your negatives

If I had the courage
I would be who you are
If I had the courage
I would be a coward

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
