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

Far south the lift,
