Treasure Island

Rowan Truebody


Still here


Walk away, don’t look back, that’s the advice
So why oh why do I always think twice?
Is it love, hate or over-developed sense of duty
That sends me rushing in to fix it all
You’re difficult, demanding and don’t help yourself
Alienate the whole world on a daily basis
Push everyone away eventually, all but me

And yet, I don’t feel the same as I did,
I don’t look like I did, I have new dreams and plans
And yet still there’s a hold, a pull, a need to help
I ask myself what are you waiting for, what’s keeping you here
No life, only pain and endless tears, that’s all you have left
I do my best, but it’s never enough for you, never enough

The line between us isn’t thick enough, the walls not high enough
Always I hear you tugging and calling
And so I come back

Different, but back just the same.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
