Treasure Island

Hasan Ali

(London, England)

Sometimes


Sometimes

Sometimes I wish that I could fly,
so I could fly away to another place
where you and I could lie together
and no-one'd try and define or trace
how we tried to make an 'us' out of you and I
or what it means when we embrace -
Yes, I wish I could fly away
Sometimes

Sometimes I wish they'd understand
how we're one and the same
and how I can hold your hand
without playing any games
With no perverse motives or unspoken demands
and they'd realise how truly ashamed -
we are of them and how we wish they'd just understand
Sometimes

But maybe - sometimes,

We're forced to hate in our distress
yet we clutch at straws and ask for compassion
or anything we think might help our minds convalesce
as we spend eternity in moments trying to fashion
a reason or two that we can use to dress
up mistakes made in moments of passion

Maybe?

Sometimes?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
