Treasure Island

Steven Federle

(1951 / Cincinnati Ohio)

Sometimes it hurts too much


Sometimes it hurts too much,

strangling tears,
struggling breath

slowly steals
stealthy death.

did the merciful needle hurt you much?

when sleep filled your eyes,
and your thick blood ceased,
from the red pain you were
suddenly released!

but grey dull memory
remains
for me.

And the moon still be as bright.
