Treasure Island

Michael McParland


So here lies my hopes and dreams.
Of all the hopes I had could ever be.
Tossed away in a useless heap.
All that's left is to shudder and weep.

I tried so hard, I tried so long.
When and where did it go so desperately wrong?
No communication preventing unification.
I must pronounce this adventure at an end.

I wonder what will come of us.
Does the bitterness for me turn to hatred ten times plus?
I get so tense,
I get so mad,
but in the end I just feel truly sad.

The love we had,
the trust we shared.
Now I'm cold and weak,
so very scared.
I mourn this loss,
this death of me so close to you.

A eulogy now to rightly fit.
The final piece in this tragic bit.
We loved, we laughed.
From time to time we had a few massive clash.
Overall it was the best.
Always comforting to know you were my best.

I'll always remember your long dark hair.
The most beautiful smile, your precious stare.
Well good bye my love,
what will I do?
Till the end of time I'll dream of you.
I love you sweet your heart is pure,
I just wish I'd done alright by you.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
