Treasure Island

Fighting its way with compassion… determined to win the heart…
The contender…

Entering the ring going the distance determined to keep anger living
The undisputed champion…
“Discouraged Soul”


Round 1
Round in circles feeling each other out…teasing taps of hostility…
First blow… an uppercut… with beaming starry eyes of empathy fall upon “Love”
The sun falls behind massifs of pain


Round 2
A clinch by love… arms moving in with hugs and affection…
A block on the evacuating spirit
“Love” is not supposed to be here
Breaking loose… “Discouraged soul”…throws a power shot to the body…
A counter punch by “Love” leaves “Discouraged Soul” in a daze…


Round 3.
Thoughts of no more tenderness fills the heart… here comes
“Discouraged Soul”…Dancing circles… oooo. A body shot to the left and right
Looks as if ‘Love” is slowing down…
“Discouraged Soul” steps back to give one more chance for Love to call it a draw


Round 4
Such effective aggression from “Discouraged Soul”…
Frustrated … “Love” is not going down… passion fills…
A low blow by “Discouraged Soul”
A clean punch by ‘Love”… leaves “Discouraged Soul” confused
“Love is taking on the Rope a Dope style…
Fondness devotion

This maybe it for “Discouraged Soul” rubbery legs is trying to hold but is unable…
“Discouraged Soul” takes a Teddy Pendergrass fall
Looks like another Love TKO…
“Love” once again takes another belt from a negative champion leaving “Discouraged Soul” to free the heart and be happy once again….

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
