Treasure Island

Aimee Nell


Strong Enough


The river coming up to suffocate me.
The smoke filling up my lungs to drown me.
And then a breath of new air.
Not untainted,
But full of life.
And a hand,
Reaching out to grab mine,
If only I am strong enough to grasp it.

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
