Treasure Island

Wishes and Thoughts


I must be one to hate secrets for it's not one
that my thoughts dictate my entire entity
My thoughts wander freely like rabbits at night
touching subjects labeled in bold: 'KEEP AWAY'
And in still, all I reside in my hope tank
my very wish: to find a love all my own
In denial, I could've sworn I've found her
I could be myself, I could relieve my deepest troubles
spill my contents of my deepest fears into her ears, my novel
yet it took a single flaw on my part
simple things I just couldnt get right
My overthinking picked a fight with me and I lost
while an unknown anger kicked me when I was down
and at the curb of inquiries along with untold feelings
was I left to fend for myself, tackle my struggles without a guide
when desperately I was silently calling out for one
was I left to wait another day
debate if I needed any of this
Why can't somebody, anybody tell me, show me
All the things I need to do, hidden from me
I fall prey to lost while she falls in love with smiling apart from me
Chasm, do you have room for a tenant
What am I supposed to do
I barely manage a smile just to turn away
only wishing out that she could open her eyes and see..
Is everyday a foreshadow of the misery I endure
A perpetual happy never after mystification of my wishes
wishes and thoughts
Was I wrong to want one more time
her hand to hold and to feel her arms embrace
a temporary home for my wayward soul
now I stand miles away
knowing I'm excommunicate

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,
