Treasure Island

Elizabeth Celestino


so close, so far


You said they’d never change you
You said they’d never morph you to their own
You said you’d never be a strategy
You said destiny didn’t apply to you
Yet there you lay
Consumed by fate
The moon of your desire
Casts an Eclipse on the
Sunshine of your hate
Overwhelming emotions
Sometimes for the better
Sometimes for the worst
A drawn door
Big enough to let pain leak out
In a river of red
Black your eyes blind
Clothe yourself invisible
They’ll still break into your thoughts
And pull for information
Funny how you thought I loved you
Funny how you thought we’d last
Funny how you heard me screaming
And left me there to die
But now you want me
And now I’m gone
But you’ll be waiting
Not far from the trigger
Because the razor isn’t enough anymore
Don’t think I don’t know that
Because when you’re done that gun is mine
So go ahead and dig my grave
And I’ll dig yours
And we can die together
So far apart

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
