Treasure Island

Edwina Reizer

A Demanding Tenant


My heart is a demanding tenant
that defies common sense.
It doesn’t care what my mind thinks.
It sets up a barrier fence
to complicate this life of mine.
It tells me to leave my senses behind.
It takes a strong will to defy the heart.
It has a will of its own.
It wears you down, tears you apart.
And with its every beat you’ve known
You will not be the winner.
You will lose in the end.
And that tenant that lives inside of you
will never be your common sense friend.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
