Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Anguish


Deep down through all the anguish, hurt lies with sorrow,
crying, wishing for a life to have some joy and happiness,
living like a nomad in the desert sands.

Held within themselves their love and talent lies hidden
in a tent, afraid to venture forth and mingle with the
crowds, instead dying slowly beneath self-hate.

Falling steadily into the depths of non-returning life,
sleeping with the kiss of death beneath a pillow.

Deep down through all the anguish, hurt dies, becoming
sorrow.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
