Treasure Island

Another Year


As if we were planets
Waltzing into another universe
We sit down to dinner
There’s too much smoke between us
Your face locked in a mask
Betraying tears I’ve wiped from its cheeks
Passions we’ve unfolded in our soul’s
Search for the right recipe
Spiral down the drain
….yet from the pieces left behind
We’ll pick up and try again

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
