Treasure Island

Brandon Brooks

(may 12 1993)

she said no

remember the pain
of my soul crumbling away
after she said those words to me
it was like the world starting to fray

i felt like stopping the beat of my heart,
the rythm of my breathing,
but there was something, a part
that said no to my surrender

i tried agian, but still the same answer
she evaded me, but infected me
like a deadly cancer
only i obtained this disease and nobody else did

agian i tried, but she still said no
still she denied me
she cut me down, but i still grow
and i will try, but she will still say no

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
