Treasure Island

Virginia Cairns

(June 25,1993 / Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Fragmented Earth


Splitting, tearing
The earth breaks apart

Feel its pain
Watch pieces of earth fall deep into the ocean

Earth is breaking
Losing parts of itself

Forever buried
Swallowed whole by the black waters

Never to be recovered
Never to resurface

Hear the creatures on earth
Their cries muffles by the destruction

Hearts breaking
Lives lost

Eaten by the pits of hell
The demons lurking below

They surface
Attack the earth and its creatures

Causing pain
Taking lives

Dragging earth's inhabitants down
Filling hell with them

Say goodbye
They are gone

For all eternity
Can not come back

Now you are dying
along with the rest of your fragmented soul

Never to be whole
Always broken inside

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is about how I have felt. Like I am losing pieces of my soul to the demons in situations around me. I feel broken inside, and wonder if I will ever be whole. The beginning half is metaphorical so to speak.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
