Treasure Island

Lauren B Called

A Dream


The sun didn't rise
When the sky fell
Afraid to go outside
The earth looked like hell

So sure you wanted
To see for yourself
Ran from it and hid
Just like everyone else

You needed something
Couldn't quite understand
Reached for a smoke
To put in your hand

Others were there too
Those cared for the most
Doing their own thing
Like we were only ghosts

What soon seemed like a normal
Staggered hung over morn
Ended when I woke
Safe in my bed warm

The boy already playing
An early rise like me
Dusting of white
Blanketing the ground and trees

Come back to the surface
This time it stays with me
Unable to let go like
That which I set free

Amazed the snow flies
On this cold spring day
And the way things I suppress
Escape in other ways

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
