Treasure Island

Lauren Degnan


Dark gloom in sight
Let me sleep tonight
Let me sleep about nothing
But surely not something

Leave me here
I’ll steer
Let me through
Go away and stay away

    In this poem, you are describing how to steer away from your night mares. I have nightmares all the time. I guess because I love reading Goosebumps at 12 or 1 during dark but full moon nights. Having a nightmare to me is like watching a Goosebump film. But sometimes, when the nightmare is notabout Goosebumps, I do get scared. Once, I even bit off all the nails on my left hand. I loved this poem a lot. Great job. Deserved a ten. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes dreams can turn into nightmares and you have described how it is sometimes when you can't control them! ! But if you learn how to 'steer' them and remind yourself that it's just a dream, you can dream whatever you want to dream... very interesting, in this poem you talked to your nightmare to stay away, great job!
    Love you!

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
