Treasure Island

Jake Deeds

(5/11/1965 / Arkansas)


MY steps, taken blindly to an unmarked path
And my eyes stoically stare backward as the next
Step is trusted in sequence… the pendulum set
Into motion… one pushing against the other
Without any real movement…Pandora paddles
The perot…in circles…under my eyes…and the tears
Suspend the here and now…no turning back…regret
Regresses…sanity slows to the speed
Of sloth…reality no longer co-exists
I grow sleepy to the world…<><

    Wow! I need a pendulum. (I have really bad insomnia...) I could really connect to this. part of what keeps me awake is remorse. The title is creative as well. I believe that's Rapid. Eye. Movement....ORSE or Remorse. Anyway, great read. Thanks for share. (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,
