Treasure Island

Almedia Knight Oliver

Hold Onto Dreams

Let go of that night he walked out on you…the relationship
Was broken long before you were dropped…now, pick up the
Pieces and move on… holding tight just a dream.

A broken bell still rings, just as a broken heart still feels the break
Then hastily puts it back together, and making it complete.

Keep holding tight the dream of dropping your gaze and eyes to half-mast
Then twined your arms around his neck, buried your face into his, and
Asking for the kiss of death.

The rest is to tell: savoring the tasty Mona Lisa smiles on your lips that taste
Like Venus, the evening star, shimmering in the West after sunset…

Now, the brightness of him falls back into the darkness of my mind
I’m letting him go and holding onto myself, and giving him the rest:
This dream…

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,
