Treasure Island

Desire


Uncontrollable faith and consuming lust is all I feel, you’re all that’s really real
God only knows if you will ever feel the same, but still I won’t denounce the truth
Love, it’s all I feel when I am with you
This constant wait chews me up and spits me out, but it intoxicates me in every form
The risk of hanging on something that may never fully exist is my biggest fix
Drunk on emotion, love is all I wish
Fear of reality sinking in leaves a scarring art across my heart
Fact not fiction, a possibility of my greatest affliction
Hope bares so much more pain
Cravings for answers are what make me weak, but lack of these is what keeps me intact
The longer the wait the further I may have to fall, faking in truth devastation through it all
The truth is all I seek, though I am in love with the possibility and all it’s mystique

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
