Treasure Island

Ashley Davis

(10/27/91 / Dallas, tx)

Thoughts and feelings...

Different turns
No way of knowing
Which way I'm going
Pain that comes and goes
Pain that never leaves
Wanting to just scream

The hunger I feel
And the questions that never get answers
Questions of Why? What? How?
Why did this happen to me?
What do i do now?
How do I move on?

Feelings of loneliness
Needing love form others
Never seeming to be satisfied

Afraid to ask...
Who's fault it this?
Nobody's fault but my own...right?
But I had no control
Debating with myself
If not my fault then who's?
No blaming.

Sorrow for those who are not listened to
Wanting to be heard...
But only told...
'You are too young to understand'
People telling me to stay young
But then tell me to grow up?

Voices telling me to get it together
put that cute little smile on
things will be alright...
But when?

Solitude inside and out
wanting to fly away
sky that is sunny
but no brightness warms me

Feels like I'm holding me breathe
Waiting, watching, but not really seeing
hoping someone will save me
Save me from this life of darkness

(This was just thoughts that i had at one point and then i just put it together)

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,
