Island - Poem by Kevin East

An Island
Am I.
Caressed by the sea.
Blessed to be free.
Mellow.
Yellow,
My buddy the sun.
Bloody his sunsets run.
Like the end
Of my tapestry spun.
Hung,
In gallery
Of an open sky.
Flung,
Clear of embrace and tears
Am I.
Silent fears fly by.
Unseen at night,
But moonlight
Wraps me in blanket blue.
A rhapsody of wind chimes.
That bird of paradise flew
From distant stars.
With new rhymes.
Scars,
Only remind me
I did feel!
That hitman of love
Would shoot me down,
Then reveal
Promises to a wounded clown.
They buzzed around
No longer than
The Mayfly's dance.
I bled in a trance.
To be healed in the skies.
My soul evaporated
To rise
And glide.
Hide,
Outside the silver curtain of Heaven.
Ride,
From the Aurora
On a plethora
Of forgotten dreams.
To finally wave goodbye,
- It seems.
My heart gave
Just one sigh.
As my tears
Left a rainbow on high.
Lonely years
Now
An Island am I.
