Treasure Island

Matthew English

(4/2/1995 / Kent; The Garden of England)


The thought of you not talking to me, as if all emotion is drained from my heart, my mind.
Am i selfish? probably. Selfless? probably. My mind is not quick to thought when i speak sometimes. As a consequence i say/share what i should not with you- so instead you get angry, upset. Did one mean for such a consequence? no. To you i speak, not with vanity, but with ease. To you words come out too honestly- perhaps maybe this is due to your beauty, both of the mind and appearance. Too modest you are and disagree, create a facade of profanity, that puts you down~ not to mask yourself, but break from the horrendous nature of humanity; your voice distant but of beauty.
I am a lover of many sorts, away from convention. To me to love is not to be closed off by boundaries, but a sense of freedom to be shared with a select. Feelings i find impossible to share with one person only.
Distance is vile, but love is eternal.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

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,
