Treasure Island

Haunted


I wish I had seen your eyes
or have had the chance to hold you in my arms
or have had the chance to hear your cries
the frequent dreams of you
always leave me feeling blue
i'd sink the day that i knew
I'd never get to meet you
All these plans I made, big dreams and aspirations
disappointmented, fill with nothing but frustrations
He took you away from me too soon
I'll never forget the day
It was three in the afternoon
I knew something wasn't right
I cried many tears that night
now, I stand defeated in the fight
what would life had been like?
what if that day you were born?
It still pains me, haunts me deep
I can barely lay myself to sleep
I remain torn about you though
because with me, is where you should have been
someday we'll meet again, but, until then
you are the angel who flew away
leaving me that day in dismay
None of my dreams I had for you will see the day of light
because of that day, it's been put in my mind that I might
Probably will never be able to conceive again
and it's that fear that i have maintained

    Can feel the pain that haunts you through your poem. Not clear though who you lost, a child, wife or? Maybe a rewrite with a little more revealed to the reader. It is very intense though. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
