Treasure Island

Simone Graves


I Fell For A Tragedy


I fell for a tragedy.
Collapsed flat on my face at your feet.
Prayed and cried that He'd let me sleep.
The heat.
Tortured my body.
The cries.
Burned in my mind.
I twisted my heart to try to wring it out dry.
Dramatic behavior, but i think that I died last night.
I begged with telekinesis that you'd open your eyes.
Make me your poem, story, and life.

I've fallen for your tragedy.
Collapsed flat on the ground.
All I can hear are those soft burning sounds.
Your words.
Torture my body.
Your claims.
Forget all elses names.
For the first time in history I don't want to be the same.
Some kind of miracle, I can walk from legs lame.
You've taken my heart and somehow have me tame.
I love you with my fibers and being, and I've never been so afraid.

So what is there else to do but sit here and wait?
Writing maddening poems to try and keep myself sane.
Buried in His book, begging for the peace
That I pray day and at night when I can't find the sleep.

I've fallen for your tragedy.
So tell me now what to do.
I'll wait here forever to discover the truth.
If for some reason you never come around,
I'll fall on the floor
keeping my face flat down.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"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—
