Treasure Island

Eddie Chaney


Safe Haven


I bite my tongue with words left unspoken,
feelings never released at levels such as this.
I open whats left to salvage of this broken soul,
to find what it really means to experience bliss.

Was it that look from brown eyes showing through,
it might have been that whisper from silent hearts.
Could it have been the kiss leading to something more,
ranking higher than anything logged on lovers charts.

We didnt get where we are by living in what was,
as steps now taken backwards as emotions shot ahead.
Theres no need of being scared to love a comfort love,
embrace new changes in arms of the happiness instead.

You're not alone anymore when life pours it on stong,
sometimes flowers need a storm to wash away before.
New days bring light to dark clouds of yesterdays tomorrow,
its time to wipe away the hurt and comfort this adore.

I'll stand here forever until you realize my promise,
that everyones love has destruction thats worth savin.
Theres no need to run from the past of being unloved,
arms open and waiting is the comfort of now in safe haven.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
