Treasure Island

Dillon McKenna


L.O.V.E.


Long have my eyes been open,
Longer has my chest been sealed.
Over the years I have seen my soul chosen
Out of the tears and all the pitiful appeals,
Vainly arguing for a wandering heart.
Vicious am I for leaving and crueler to stay.
Exalted is Cupid and his darts,
Ever dispensing the joy and the pain.

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,
