Treasure Island

Kaysen Fraker

(12/20/88 / Georgia)

Waiting...


A sapphire among diamonds
a lily among roses
a cowgirl among city slickers
one unlike any other

No matter what falls in her path
she refuses to stop
getting rid of two legged dogs
defeating life threatening illnesses

Scared from past pain
pain that still haunts her
unwilling to admit
what she’s truly waiting for...

A cleric
a healer of the heart
someone to catch her tears
someone to help fight the pain

But in fear of further pain
and more scares
she tries to fight her desire
and push men away

There’s one major flaw in her plan
something that makes her pushing pointless
someone unwilling to give up
me

No matter how long it takes
I will be there
standing by her
ready to catch her when she falls

I will be there
on my feet
willing to wait as long as it takes
for her to open her iron clad door

So for now
I stand at her door
unwilling to move
waiting...

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,
