Treasure Island

ryan dainiel brown


the island


Feet buried in the sand
Watching and waiting
Hoping for the unimaginable
No ship will come

Years have past
Washed away by the sea
Alone, lying on my beach
Crying out for you

So far away
Yet close to my heart
My body burns for your touch
Survival clings to you

Do you feel the same
Is my absence known
Do sleepless nights
Haunt you the same

How can it
My foolish mind
Love is not here
Only a childish fling

Love, only a word
Unknown to you
Wasted life
Yearning for a tainted fruit

Let the tide in
Wash me away
Leave my troubles
Buried in the sand

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
