Treasure Island

Gilbert Alasa

(Edo State, Nigeria)

Sounds of Broken Lips


Sometimes I cry, somedays I groan
Yet, no one seems to behold
This ever-flowing tears
In this dark world I fare
Whose gloom the stars half-shone
At times I murmur, at times I grumble
Who cares what cause the tears a shed
Even from my nose its blood bled

No pal nor foe the stain cleanse, I moan
Blinking the badge at the lonely sky, I foam
Attempting not to dash the jaw a toss, dispensed
Screaming, yet voice not heard
Squatting in confines not consented, lo
My passion judged by your own!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
