Treasure Island

jonathan Juarez

(Orange CA.)

ect.


Illusion separates chosen proofs
Of life as we know it.

Loss is a point blank mirage,
And losing forever is only to arrive at a distance.


To be alone is to be deserted.
Loneliness is a state of mind.


What presence, a state of emergency
Without help relief.

And when lives are distinct from each other
Together we distinguish ourselves.

Separate from ourselves is all that is forgotten;
Together we are the memory of existence.

But our amnesia forgets this is a dream
And suffers from the pain of loss.

To say yes to life is to conspire with....
The consciousnesses of infinity.

Infinity includes loneliness
Infinity includes non-infinity

Infinity is only one reality
In the memory of existence.

    Wow, I could feel parts of myself arguing in this..I imagine that's how you wrote it, sort of..at least in my imaginings. Together we are the memory of existence, that's some heavy stuff, definitely full of some reality.'But our amnesia forgets this is a dream and suffers from the pain of loss' is pretty heavy to. And that last verse,
    that's killer. I really like the way you did this. (Report) Reply

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,
