Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

Surrender


So, here I am blind within your dimension
In a dim cloaking mist still a man
You’ve taken my illumination
The gleam and ray of life, I had
Cast in this state alone in silence
Frighten by night and cold: yet, alive
Reaching thru dimness for awareness
Watching fading shadows change and surprise
In spirit, I accepted rather then doubting
Believing in best aims with its dream
Felt you hiding in your palace gloom
One brush from you things became insane
You are a wreaking disaster
Annihilation and last click of night
The underworld king, they tell me
Self anointed prince of pain with no laughs
Yet with lost of true vision
A tempter and worker of schemes
Freed the day Death was chased up a tree
Captured because he could not ascend

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fallen into the state of death. Alive and tormented by its realm host. Although dead still believing of the promise. Waiting for the second return. Conquest over death. Abundant life. Death realm limited to the earth not able to enter God or angel realms. Freedom and resurrection for those who supposedly died.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
