Treasure Island

Kewayne Wadley

(1987- / Groton, Connecticutt)

Shanghaied


In the ocean of your eyes
I became lost
Lost in the tidal waves that crashed underneath the water
Silence felt the space
For once I could breathe
For once I could let go
My heart was steady as I suddenly lost control
Shipwrecked
I fell forward laying down, as it all seemed but a dream
Leagues and leagues away from the land I knew so comfortably
I lay Against the ocean floor of your eyes
Was I still the same person you saw so adamantly
Would you come to know me as the pilar that stood strong in the storm of your eyes
Everything became quiet
The silent calm gusts of wind caressed the lens of your eye
As I merely watched from the window of your lashes
Watching myself seep deeper into your eyes
Those waters
So clear once the sun lit the wick that shone to the bottom of the ocean floor
Those waters so clear
As every splash brought serenity in the ocean of your eyes

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
