Treasure Island

Ben Paynter

(Midwest)

a night spent unalone


leave me to my silence
and I will leave you to your laugh
leave me to my darkness
and I will leave you to your past
or let the silence take you
and let me share your smile
while the darkness is around us
if only for awhile.

    A very touching poem Ben I really liked this one. Short and concise it still managed to convey a great emotion in it. Keep it up! (Report) Reply

    Awww this is a lovely poem ~ it seems you to can capture alot in just a few sentences too! =) I love the mention of 'silence' and 'darkness' ~ are you a fan of Sylvia Plath?
