Treasure Island

Jason J. Yu

(May 24,1995 / Gastonia, North Carolina)

Shattered


A shattered life.
Look into the broken mirror.
And see the picture coming clearer.
And see the wounds now expanding.
And the body not withstanding.
And the body made so shoddy.
With one lonely falling softly.
With one softly slowly sobbing.
And one heart slowly stopping.
With hearts shattered in reflection.
Painted red with rejection.
Reflecting image of dejection.
Lonely by a life selection.
Nothing works without affection.
When only is there but subjection.
To lonely tears of every night.
That fall from eyes without a sight.
That fall from eyes that stare with shades.
That pierce the soul like sharpened blades.
Groaning as the pain divides.
Upon a body that describes.
The pain of love that won't subside.
As wanting love means one's alive.
But one is dead now in the mirror.
See the image coming nearer.
That love was all he wanted most.
But in the mirror lies a ghost.
Who's never found a love that mattered.
And for his loss a mirror shatters.
Into pieces of his life.
Eyes cutting like a knife.
Heart choking on the floor.
Body rotting to the core.

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;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
