Treasure Island

Matthew Bresette

A Place

I am not here
I am not there
If I am not here and there
Then where am I
I guess...I am nowhere
A place between places
Where is this place?
A place between places

A place no one can go
A place no one wants to go
Is it a place where everyone is happy?
Is it a place where everyone is sad?
The place is neither happy nor sad
It's a place where nothing happens at any given time
A place that is between hitting someone out of anger
A place that is between saying something out of love

A place where a person doesn't have to write but has too
A place where a person wants to write to show other people what they
A place where eyes tell everything
A place where a face tells nothing
I am not here
I am not there
Where am I?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
