Treasure Island

Melissa Renee

(May 25,1997 / Rochester, NY)

Jaded


A jaded life a jaded heart, isn't it so hard to start?
Rubies falling to the ground, hush now quite don't make a sound.
Gleaming steel dyed bright red, though you wish you can't be dead.
Fake a smile, fake a laugh, turn around and remove the mask.
A bitter taste to complete the package 'cause no one here sees the damage.

    A chaotic world indeed, Melissa. Damage....
    Let's just step out of the rat race and start a kindness revolution exactly where we are. Let all the money and rubies dropp and flow where it wants to flow. Enjoy the sweetness of a simple random kind act (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
