Treasure Island

Virginia Cairns

(June 25,1993 / Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Dim Light of Hope


Darkness
Nothingness

All around me
Everywhere I look

Suffocating me
Closing in all around

Screams echoing back
No answers to be heard

Alone
Dying inside

Bottled up
In this black empty sea

Torture
Endless pain

Nothing there
Nothing to cause this pain

All alone
Crying out for help

Is this death?
The afterlife for the tortured soul?

I close my eyes,
Giving up

Consumed and overwhelmed
Drowning in sorrow and pain

Hope dead
Shredded by the blackness

A dim light reaches my eyes
Barely shining, yet as bright as the sun

A sliver of hope
Just over the horizon

Maybe I can reach it,
Maybe this isn't the end after all

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Lately I have been going through a rough patch, and this morning was my breaking point. Thanks to this breaking point, I now have 6 new poems, although morbid and depressing. Hope they are able to help someone else through hard times like they did me!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
