Treasure Island

Lynn El Amine

(28 september 1991 / Antwerp - Belgium)

Under the weather...

Under the weather
Down low
Beneath the ground
Water, mud, rain…

Soon I'll be gone
With the sand
In the wind

Sunny side up
Not so sunny
So I walk
Or is it mope?

I mope around
Away from the day
Escaping the sun's ray

Or is it a dark cloud?
I don't know
I can't see
I simply breathe
The dirty smoke

Under the weather
There I go
I just lost myself
Oops, clumsy me
I am but a simple waste of skin
That roams unnoticed
Tragic Empty Space
Under the weather
Just a little raindrop
Leaking from tube to tube
Leaf to leaf
The bud of my light,
Turned back into a seed
Back to square one
Under the weather
Away from the sun
Under the weather
Under the mud

Purple, violet
I'm color blind
Blissfully unaware of my bind

Winter, fall
I don't matter
Silently, calmly, I crawl
Carrying my broken shell
Heavy weight
Fragile neck, my fragile back
Unseen snail
Under the weather
Under the rain…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
