Treasure Island

Michael McParland


For the first time now I'm truly doubting reality.
I'm not sure I'm left with a single bit of sanity.
Nothing seems to connect between you and me,
our experiences points of view are all strangely askew.

I don't know what's really real anymore.
I'm doubting everything I remember or even the reality of what I do.
I'm doubting that I ever was a decent person,
or that anybody sees in me a single rhyme or reason.

I don't know what's slightly real anymore.
Which way I've been which way I go I'm doubting evermore.
I doubt myself and know that you can't love me.
How could you when my reality is paper thin and never seemed to properly fit you in.

I doubt that you could love me because even though I thought I only did certain things that hurt you.
I must have done so much more but my brain has now erased it.
I truly doubt my worth of existence or anybodies need for me.
I'm not sure I'll ever straighten out and I'm terrified for all my insanity breaking out.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
