Treasure Island

Ashley Davis

The Road


Miles continue on
Tonight is no different.
Days run together
Days keep me alive
Spaced out in a daze
Don't know where Im going
Knowing its far

A smile that never reaches the eyes
A heart that wants to cry
A heart that wants to die

Being knocked down by words
The kind of violence
The kind of abuse
That never leaves visible scars

Sparks in her eyes
Pain in the heart
She tries to get a grip
Weakened by the hurt

Drinking the pain away
Never helps
Cutting the pain away
Never helps
Screaming, crying, yelling
Never helps.

You'll see to never get your hopes up.
Things in Life is never a guarantee.
I've learned the hard way.

The telling of lies
The promises never kept
Down on my knees asking God...please!

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
