Treasure Island

James Bost

(March 24 1993 / Baltimore Maryland)

YELLOW


YES SHE YELLOW
SCARED TO SHOW
THE INSIDE
WHAT IM WANTED TO KNO
CAN I BE WRONG
ALL I WANNA DO IS SHOW HER A MAN
BE HER ANSWER
CUZ TO ME I SEE RIGHT THRU HER
LIKE GLASS
FACING CRACKS IN THE PASS
OF A DARK PLACE
DO I KNOW WAT I FACE
NOT AT ALL
BUT I TAKE THE CHANCE TO CRACK OPEN THE TREASURE
TAKING TIME TO MEASURE
HER APPEALING WAYS
LIVING THRU THESE DAYS
I'VE BEEN ASKING GOD TO KEEP ME COMPANY WITH A SOUL
THAT MAKES ME FEEL WHOLE
AND PLUS WANTING TO FEEL THE REASON
WHY AS A MAN ALL GIRLS HAVE TO BE THE REASON
BUT SHE STAY YELLOW AND UNEXSPOSED
ALWAYED CLOSED
WHY CANT SHE CRACK LIKE AN EGG
SHE HELD IN HER THOUGHTS AND AFRAID OF REALITY
OF WHATS REAL AND WILL BE TRUE
SHE'S A ROCK.....SOLID ROCK
SETTING THERE WONDERING WHY
OF COURSE SHE ACTS AS IF SHE NOT IN NEED OF HELP
BUT NEEDS A HAND TO FIND HERSELF
INDEPENDENTLY SHE STRUGGLES CUZ SHE SHALLOW
FEELING A SHAMED AND DOUBTFULL
CUZ OF WHAT HAD OCCURED
BUT AFRAID TO BE VISIBLE
SO SHE COVERS IT WITH YELLOW

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
