Treasure Island

Sameera Alshaikh


Sour times


The voice in my head is depleted of strength, it won't talk back.
Sadness... the mask starts to crack.
These thoughts and unspoken questions never got me anywhere.

    This is beautifully written. You are very much like me when it comes to pain...and trying to express it properly. Unfortunately there are no human words proper enough to accurately describe what goes on in the human heart...but we will keep trying, huh? (Report) Reply

    Deep melancholy wonderfully expressed.
    The question about sanity is a haunting one.
    If we define sane by the standards of a society full of rules, we may not want to be too sane all the time.
    Let our imagination roll, let's believe in the good.
    Simple kindnesses to the lowest of our friends can make wonders and can turn us around.

    A wonderful piece of poetry. you are in my prayers. (Report) Reply

    I like the style to this poem and the content is well stated. It is a narration of thoughts, bouncing off one another and echoing in your ears. Many people can relate to this poem I think. And Sameera-I question my sanity all of the time. Hopefully As long as I question my sanity I'm still sane, right? (that was one of my favourite lines, it's almost humorous with how honest it is.

    Hopelessness often makes one feel miserable. Yes, in such times sanity is also questioned because nothing remains. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
