Treasure Island

Tessa Monaghan


they came and go
the click ticks
ticks away my chances
and my time that i have
to feel special to someone
to feel like you matter

is taking that away
before i can finish
and have my chance.
it's gone
fast then it use to be

i barely have my chance
im barley there
i quickly get singled out
my chances belong
to someone else
someone close
and someone dear.

Just so you know
i know your done with me
before i even got my fair chance
so should i bother?
i have no reason to
so i'll tell you this
and anyone else who may care
i give up
im done trying
im done putting my mind,
and thoughts out there
i'll be silent
i'll be motionless

until someone worthy enough
of this feeling
comes along...
most likely years down the road
for the next one
to give me
my proper chance.
the one that i deserve

the clock ticks
and my life fades
along with my importance
with any possible chances

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,
