Treasure Island

Jason J. Yu

(May 24,1995 / Gastonia, North Carolina)

Vanish


Sometimes the agony,
of being lost in an unfamiliar place,
takes the S off my chest,
and brings forth my kryptonite,
as I walk the city streets in somber.
Contemplating all the shadows lurking,
ready to devour me with one false move,
I look up to see a single star,
moving across the sky,
and slowly tears begin to fall.
Cause beneath the darkness of the night,
lit only by the sign of a liquor mart.
I see nothing.
I feel nothing.
Except the ever approaching fear,
that I would never know anything else,
other than the abandon I feel,
walking these streets at night,
where the only shimmer of my existence,
comes from a single star,
running away from my lonely footsteps as I disappear.
Into the shadows which signify my life in general.
An illusion to the world around me.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
