Treasure Island

Please Allow Me


I know what you seek from me
You seek a true friend

Someone who will listen and care
Who will comfort you when you're down

I know what you've been through
All the pain you have suffered

The stress, agony, and torture of the body
How you cry and ball up from the emotional pain

I know what you don't want to hear
How you don't want someone to say they love you

The way it makes you feel agonizing pain
You cower away from love as much as you can

I know what you fear
How many times you have hid and locked yourself up

The way you try to evade your family
How you also shy away from love completely

I can see what you do
You close the gates to your heart

Locking yourself up in the frozen land
With monsters and demons in there with you

You block the warmth and the army
Trying to get you and save you from the demons

Although I respect you
Your wishes and desires as well

I find it urgent to tell you
I love you and want you very much

I wish to save you from your inner demons
To melt away the ice in your heart

I want more than anything
To have you

I wish to help you see the good things in your life
I wish to take away your burdens

I beg and plead that I can do this
I beg on bended knees that you will accept my love

Let me please be by your side
Not just as a friend, but as a lover

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
