Treasure Island

Adam M. Snow

(5/30/1988 / Phoenix, AZ)

Translucent


Can't you see me,
a ghost I am to be?
A translucent figure without a purpose,
fading away like a blood drop to the sea?
Can't you see me?
Hear my plea?
My words, my reason to live;
can't you hear me?
Hear my voice, a plea of sorrow,
tearful apologies,
and a truthful memory.
Can't you hear me?
See me crying;
the reflection you deny to see?
Can't you see me,
through the mirror looking back,
a ghost I am to be?
Can't you see me?
I am you.

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
