Treasure Island

Gabriela Duricova

(22.5.1984 / Bratislava)


Without Time

Running for life from a heart torn in two
Halves those by a rusty needle are sewn
Together and the void makes the string
Promising sweet oblivion to bring

But you, my love, be deaf to that voice
Of mermaids - traitors offering choice
Trust me - don't enter those stairs leading down
In shimmering visions they'll let you drown

You chasing seconds to keep young your face
Go further and further towards the scales
Me crying my heart out at the shore
I love the true you gone forevermore

Without Hope

Enter my garden full of golden trees
May your feet be caressed by smoothest green grass
Come, pick the fruits but don't forget, please
Heavenly pleasures also shall pass

Sweetness that you cannot resist but to taste
Once will become bitter and dull on your lips
Ever since all our kisses will just come to waste
Though ghost of your hands I still feel on my hips

Glittering branches those now give us shade
So that world does not disturb our love 
Watch them go dry as the passion will fade
Instead of petals rain will fall from above

Without You

Fragments of moments abandon me here
On dusty crossroads missing a sign
The face that to me has been so very dear
Seems to be hidden behind the veil

Veins lacking blood like a river run dry
Hurt a lot less than this poor heart of mine
I cut my wrists open and just watch their cry
Love dripping off them is leaving a trail

That I hope you will follow and find me one day
A flower frozen without your warm shine
For every smile they will force you to pay
I'd sell the world for your scent to inhale

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
