Treasure Island

Alexzia Ferdinand


the opposite of love


who knew a self titled romantic
would be so harmful?
how could he not comprehend
the depths of a human heart?
that not only are roses red,
but you don't find
forever while windowshopping.
Romantic isn't the correct adjective
for one who understands nothing
about falling in love alone.
