Treasure Island

For my love


Why should I close my eyes?
When I don’t want to see a dream
Why should I twist my lips?
When I need a face that looks grim

Why should I wait by the pond?
When I know you would never come
Why should I clap to the sounds of birds?
I feel chocked when I need a song to hum

Why should I collect the flowers?
Why should I make a garland?
It’s just wasting my time before the Gods
When I can’t ever take your hand

When you are not there among the clouds
Why should I wait the full moon night?
The stars are scattered all over the sky
What does it matter if they make a lovely sight?

Why should I take my pen to write?
Poems eulogizing the beauty of my lover
What value to me is the applause of the readers?
When my love is lost in someone’s heart forever.

    Very sad. Misfortune takes the strength away. But we are deep and must never let go.
    A bit despondent but the cry is heard. I like the tone and the sincerity in the poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
