Treasure Island

Samuel Flockhart

(26.06.1990)

I Can Hear Her..


I can hear her laughing, as she stumbles in from the night
I can hear him touching her, eager to turn off the light
Lying awake, the silence is pain
My thoughts are torture, my mind's gone insane
I creep into the hallway
I stab the dagger through my own heart

I can hear her whisper, like a summer's breeze turned so cold
I can hear hope leaving me, this woman i longed to hold
Standing outside, I try not to cry
As i question myself, wondering why?
You were never going to be good enough
Throw yourself into the fire

I can hear her moaning, a sick sense of delight
I can hear him thrusting her, with all that strength and might
Broken inside, i shriek at the scream
Glass heart shattered by the death of the dream
What did you expect?
You reach too high.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
