Treasure Island

Marcus Desmond


Sadness is always around me. It's the only things that never leave me. I will be happy for a moment but when i'm alone in my room I can feel it slowly creeping in my bones. Like the cold chills of the night it embraces me. In sadness I learned to understand my own life. There are times I fell in love with sadness. It makes me feel more human and alive. I have cross barriers I shouldn't be crossing because of sadness. Tears are the blood that runs through my emotions giving me new life each time it falls, like how the rain fall to water the earth. When the dawn comes a breathe of fresh air slowly blows away my sadness and like a baby slowly closing it's eyes to sleep. my sadness hides in the shadow of the night. And at the first break of sunlight my life is new again. But behind the curtains of day my sadness patiently wait to meet me at the night.

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
