Treasure Island

Me, Myself and I

(12 october 1974)

My Ghost


My ghost…my conscience…
I hold you to me, and…
Begin to see you clearly….
The love that I lost…for I would still hug you dearly…
In this forgotten field of dreams,
Clouded… from all to see,
The rain, this loss, it's so painful to see,
Your face, it brings me to tears…
Will I ever begin to forgive myself…?
With every dropp I begin to fall,
Forever to spiral within turmoil,
The shadows still chant my name,
Day after day,
But at night, I still pray,
That I will someday see your face…
Happy…smiling, and away from this storm,
These thoughts wrench me away from this dream…
Forever and ever, what they mean? ?
Whatever…your face…it's still haunting, me…
This pain, the anguish I hold it makes my soul bleed,
As these thoughts they take me away,
To a place I had long forgotten,
A place where I'm always on my knees…
Our heaven,
Our hell,
My home…

    Our conscience is with us day in and day out.
    We can never detach ourselves away from it.
    It will always be with us whether we like it or
    not. Things could be bad or good. Like it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
