Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


A Mission On This Earth


I had a feeling you were something different
Way back then
And I crossed the line I'd long to say
I didn't
Ever
Cross

Because your love
Pulled me apart
It found the inner part of me
longing to get out…
The angel
In
Me

I know now
There was
No other side to you
No hidden shadow in my hands
You showed me all
There
Was

I know it was my fault
It's not you
Or them
And I don't even know you anymore
But there's
No one else to blame,
I'm stuck with this burden
For
Life

You were my last words
Last hope, last wish, last plea
And I can't help thinking
You were my Achilles heel
The straw that broke the camel's back
As he carried
It
Home

I knew you were not
Everything I wished for
As you searched me to find me
A shadow was hiding after all
I have a mission
On this earth…
To stay away
From
You

I used to know you were trouble
Now I know you were
More than I wished for
A dream as I followed your footprints
And I have a mission
On this earth…
To find
You
Again

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
