Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Unquenched Thirst.


Ever imprinted with yearning,
.......................................... heart-beats
Hang heavy,
................. atrophied air needs desire.
Tomorrow will bring
..................................... untreated relief.
The same pain comes nightly
.......................................to set us afire.

Because of such want,
............ much thirst stays unquenched.
Imprinted, my friend,
................................... are you upon me.
I write you in verse
......................................as recompense.
Send word back to me,
.............................. then I am appeased.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
