Treasure Island

Elizabeth Fontaine Grieco

(08/14/1957 / Montreal, Quebec, Canada)

Shreds


As I sit and ponder
Only to wonder
Why you did what you did?
Leaving me so young,
With only memories of our love,
As I sit and ponder
What did you do to me?

Your friend has joined you the other day,
In a sudden heart attack admist the fray,
Only to wonder, was he the same way?
You laughed and joked with your friend,
About the simple things you did that day,
But I knew way back when, that those word
Were only a means to take you away from me,
To fantasize what you really wished to say,
How hard it was for you to whisper, 'I love you'.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
