Treasure Island

Seairra Kyger

(Febuary 18 1992)

The Clock Strikes 12 and The Moment is Gone

A crooked smile
Life of a person
Sitting in denial
Depression of spirits
A song screamed
Can you hear it?
A contradictive criminal
A hottly hero
Forgotten now is
The sidekick stuck
In the corner
Does the hero know
That he will soon mourn her?
Lovers and backstabbers
Listen closer hero
A heartbeat fades
The town is
All in cadavers
Friendships are severed
Hearts are broken
A hero has fallen…

    i really liked this poem. It took a few readings, as many with depth do. It read a little like sylvia plath, a bit sad, resigned and nostalgic for something that is not yet lost, but ultimately will be. Beautiful. Thanks for posting, and thanks for asking me to read it, im glad i did xx (Report) Reply

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
