Treasure Island

Eric Schojan

Sleepy


I do not get much rest when I lay myself to sleep,
For I'm tortured by the things I once had but couldn't keep,

I'm thrown back into situations that I've kept locked away,
Things that I'd like to forget, games I no longer play,

My dreams are no retreat, quite the opposite in fact,
My dreams pick apart the sanity i try to keep intact,

The only sanity I own and it dangles on a thread,
As the monsters swing and claw, it hangs too far above their heads,

Although I see them getting closer every single night,
There is no way for me to stop them, no way for me to fight,

So i choose to stay awake with reality abound,
Until the darkness drags me back into the metaphoric ground.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
