Treasure Island

Zandi Wardle

(South Africa)


You left my heart pouring with sadness when you said:
You liked her…
All this time I thought you were feeling me but instead
I was lying to myself; I didn’t see the signs clearly,
Guess I was caught up in this idea of you and I
I looked at you daily,
Sometimes lustfully, when you roamed around me and led me on.

See … The minute you spoke about her
I felt a pain in my chest as I held back my tears.
I have to thank you,
Though you wasted my time, My feelings for you never really made it! ! !
You built a bridge between us so I could only get that far…
So far I thought I was so close yet I wasn’t …
I’m hurt, I’ll admit
But I am glad I’m strong enough to congratulate you two.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
