Treasure Island

B.. Alexander


The Desert


What are we, without our make-believe breeding
Who am I, if it's not you that I'm feeling
We're out of time, no longer aligned
You lie resigned, my words; declined

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

What point is there, if this evening's dry
No sweat escaped, no sparkling eyes
Just some feed, followed by some sleep
You barely see what I dread to keep

But what I need; just feels like greed...

So when did it become
A party with no invitation
When were we locked out
Of the passionate celebration

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

How much longer will we walk here
In the blazing sun with no water
How much longer can I just lie here
This appetite, unsatisfied beside her

But what I need; just feels like greed...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
