Treasure Island

LaTasha Diane Thomas


Crush or 2 Be Crushed


Smitten…Do you call me foolish for being a fool
Fuzzy bunnies and butterflies, I guess that's cool
Curious…All day I long for him to notice me or give me a simple wink
Does he even care about how I feel or what I think
Weak…Sick to my soul, sending chills thru my knees
Crying so hard that my tears start to bleed
Crazy...Screaming because I'm stuck on this emotional rollercoaster
Waiting for the pinch as a sign that this nightmare is over
Confused...That I can't fathom his nonchalant head nod
Wondering if his abstruse smile is a mere facade
Forgotten...My feelings are caged like a dove
Choked, even stifled by this thing they call love
When will I be free to finally breathe
Trying hard not to give up on what I believe

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,
