Treasure Island

Iris Rapoport

The Physical World

Let go of the rope
That binds me with you
In the mortal world,
All in physical views

Let go of me, unleash my soul
Take me away,
Sap the pain that I feel
Obliterate it truly

Let go of the bindings
That I have put on myself
Through my life in here,
In this place of death
I have put on myself
The bindings of death.

Now I want to release them:
They symbolize my life
In the past
On the earth,
Far from all kinds of help.

I feel,
And I know
That now I am supposed
To go…
I am going away.

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
