Treasure Island

Untitled


Lies, like heavy stones
Are piled on my back
The weathered leather that binds them
Cuts into my skin
Yet still I walk
For a beast stalks me
His creation was a beautiful thing
Long ago in my past
At first, he made my life simple
Hoarding all my dark secrets and fears
In a heavy, golden chest
Now, dark knowledge empowers him
It drives him to find me
The man who created him is long gone
I share his body
The lies, like stones, slow me down
Yet still I run

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,
