Treasure Island

Denial


Finnaly, I don't live by you,
I wake in the morning,
Without your presence in my mind.

My window, brought me a beautiful day,
full of rain, sorrow and clouds,
full of life,
Just this morning...

You no longer my reason, my madness.
You no longer my way to freedom,
You are just somebody,
Drought in a sea of sadness...

I like you right there,
Away from me,
In a distant, forgetable place,
Without time, reason or pain,

I like you in the distance,
Away from my flowers,
My moon and my hapiness...
Completely away from my tears.

You are no more than a spectrum,
Sometimes a memorie...
Sometimes a face, a smile....

You no longer in my mind,
Just sometimes....Just sometimes...
For a short, unbearable moment...
Just...when I close my eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
