Treasure Island

G.R. Gaus

(April 11 1950 / St. Louis)

Of Fear


Lightly beneath a transparent veil,
Lost within the loneliest space,
Evil spirits have taken sail,
Upon the sea of fallen grace.

Traveling through a barren land,
On a life created from fear,
Endless desert of changing sand,
No oasis of salvation near.

Wondering among a faceless crowd,
Empty emotions fill the void,
A darkened sky, of heavy cloud
Once beautiful, now destroyed.

Well hidden is the deadly snare,
Camouflage hides the truth,
Deception breeds within her lair,
Attacks the innocence of youth.

A poison in the blood doth flow,
False security pumps the heart,
Restricting all but pain to grow,
Life's true spirit; torn apart.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
