Treasure Island

(13 June 1959 / Queens, New York)

Believe...


If I could get lost,
In the honesty of your touch...
If I could look into your eyes-
and touch the depths,
of your soul...
If I could,
Remove your pain...
I would...
If for one moment-
I could even dream...
Even feel the warmth
of you...
Close to me...
Feel the tenderness,
of a human life
entwined in mine...
Would you embrace me?
In a silent dance?
Composed of melody,
of the beats of a heart?
In a moonlit night?
On a soft meadow grass...
In the warmth of a summer rain?
Is it possible-
That honest love,
can remove ones' pain?
Or is it always passion-
That makes one feel whole?
Can tenderness,
offer a greater compliment-
to a broken heart-
on a lonely night?
How do you love -
so far from you?
How do you -
once again believe?
Oh to break down the 'walls'-
To become 'someone'....
When do you find strenght
to remove...
The barriers of a past...
You never did control...
Will there ever be a moment,
You could trust your heart
To not deceive you
anymore?
If ever it were possible...
Then -just maybe then-...
Inside of me,
might be a reason
to hope...
To know- this time,
Love was right-
To Believe...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
