Treasure Island

Kevin East

(22 April 1954 / Amersham bucks)

With her, Without her.


One afternoon with you
And then to die,
I would always choose
Than to be without you
For 20 more years,
A life without a fuse.
With you
Time races like our hearts.
But when you are gone
The ice age starts.
Empty rooms
With ticking clocks.
Escape
Is just like picking locks.
With you
My soul
With poetry sings.
Without you
My heart
To sad prose clings.
Together
Feels like Christmas day.
Apart
Pealing bells fade
In dismay.
With you
A duet
Of symphonies kissing.
Without you
A jigsaw
With one piece missing.
If I could have my 10 minutes of fame
I'd famously spend it with you.
Looning,
As we bid adieu.
Crooning,
With a moon so blue.
Ascending to where the angels flew.
Hearts mending
When we're out of view.
I go on praying
Everyday.
That love will find a way.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
