Treasure Island

A Second Salem


I can only sit here in the dark,
crying because I missed the mark;
locked and too lazy to reach for the key,
as cold and numb as one could be.

I try to be perfect,
but my life you must dissect,
and you can only make it worse,
leaving me trapped in your curse.

I don't know why you can't see,
that all you do is hurt me,
I don't know why I'm still here;
I'll be gone soon my dear.

Add more fuel to the fire,
you're the wood of a liar;
you sentence me for burning,
when you've caused the hurting.

You pretend to be a judge,
but you only harbor a grudge;
Shall I too fall and die,
because of a jealous child's lie?

    Wow! This took my breath away...I agree with alexis, the 1st,4th, & 5th stanzas are such powerful illusrtations. Captivating from beginning to end. This is one of my favorites by you! Going on my favorites list. (Report) Reply

    The symbolism is amazing. Ever line a different image but all with the same feeling....impressive and impactful. (Report) Reply
