Treasure Island

nicola burkett

(30.04.1984 / South East, London)

Underneath


These walls that surround me
Crumble down upon me
Underneath the rubble
In total darkness

Inches away from death
I gasp to save my breath
Underneath the rubble
In a different reality

The salt water tears I cry
I wipe from my sore red eyes
Underneath the water
In a sea of nightmares

Standing in the rain
My heart filled with pain
Underneath the sky
In a world of nothing

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