Treasure Island

Noah Body


A Space Odyssey


Out around Alpha Centauri
Adrift and lost in space and time
Drifting slowly in the black or space
All I know is control ain't mine

In a tiny craft that is my world
Comets and meteors shoot on by
Passing near and far in my sky
One simple hit and she'll not fly

A black hole waiting to suck me up
The event horizon there somewhere
If it catches me I'll not escape
I'm sorry to say I just don't care

The missiles that fly by are my thoughts
The black hole is found at my core
My mind has turned against me
And when I die it'll be at the fore

That tiny craft is my lonely life
Lost out there around a star
Why this has happened I don't know
All I know is I'll not go far

Before the end comes out of the black
Before a missile from deep in space
Comes shooting in to take me out
Finishes me before I'm done that race

I cannot wait for it to happen
I welcome that end, I long for it
My life is a shambles, worse then hell
I'll not miss it, I'll have no fit

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
