Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...

poking passion to see if it's alive

will you keep me
and barefoot
if the grass is soft- if your
mood orders gladness
clapping to my smile
when i first wake up...

or will the chair
hurt when i finally sit
and listen to you quit
on me again...

this trail is yours-
i only made one basket
no blankets this time
we need to let the dirt
remind us
where we came from;

i need to feel you
squeeze harder
when my hand slides
into the base of your palm
to know you've left no
wiggle room-

that this is a portal to your
changed mind,
that you re-wound time
and decided
to listen to my story

    It sounds as if the writer is trying to rekindle a relationship
    that appears at times very one sided, passionately speaking.
    I admire the way you ended the thought. (Report) Reply

    that this
    is a portal to your
    changed mind, that you
    re-wound time
    and decided
    to listen to my story
    If listen to someone's story we understand him and understanding is the base of friendship and friendship may be the base of love. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
