Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Queen on the Throne


It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

A world of evil,
a world of disarray
That's what would happen if we
let it all fall away
And he spoke like a liar
the sound I know best
But I tricked myself into
thinking he's better than the rest

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

I'm in midair, falling
hanging tight to the sling
It's holding me to reality
I'm almost lost from everything
But I trust it to hold
as I hurtle down the slope
My fingers are numb
love tangled in my throat

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

It's taking a chance
in a whirlwind day
It's climbing a mountain
in an effortless way
to reach the top
my heart pushes on
The wizard of goodness
the queen on the throne

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

Poem of the Day

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,
