Treasure Island

Matt Reyes

(11-29-90 / Midland, Tx)

Hypnotized


The stars twinkle in the clear sky,
Like those beautiful green eyes.
But the night wishes to devour them,
Try as I might, they can't be saved.
Oh, how I long for days of old,
Where we'd talk for hours.
Now, you ignore me.
My heart aches.
Nature cries my tears.
Are we alive?
Just to die?
I can't stop loving you,
Though you may have stopped loving me.
I wish I could make things right.
I want to be your guiding light..
I don't blame you, y'know?
Perfect girl like you,
Deserves far better than me.
How I long to feel our bodies,
Come together, but it's just a dream.
I can't move on.
Darkness swallows all.
But I'll always be there.
In the off chance you need me.
I'll never get over you.
I hope that you can see.
You have my heart, Green-Eyed Dove,
You'll always have my boundless love.
If only you'd take a chance.
To see if those feeling come back.
Just a shot, is all I'm asking,
To see if you belong with me.
I'll never love another.
The stars twinkle bright in the clear sky,
Like your beautiful green eyes.
Eyes that pierce my cold, bitter heart,
And leave me hypnotized.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
