Treasure Island

Abdulrasheed Dawodu


Moonlight


Just when I was; depressed,
Overwhelmed with solitude,
Suppressed by loneliness
And engulfed by the claws of boredom
My moon
You shone through my life,
Shooed the blues away
And abated my ire
With your moonlight so rare

I rejoice in delight
The dark vacuum in my life
Is now filled with light
My weary mind
Is lightened with your smile
Now I live a brand new life
My moon
With you I'll rather be

But you are far above the sky
So high
How do I travel these miles?
A long distance in space and time
I can only pine
In this euphoric light
As I wish more than just your
Moonlight

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
