Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Uh Huh


Living in a four wheeled desperation
At the end of a graveled road
Living on electronic e-mail
And all the mails are hammering me down

I hop around from home to home
More times than than a toad
Has bumps on his ass
Living in a house of glass

My short cut sleaves
Give me much more room
To wear my grief
Like unto a shadowy thief

Stealing thoughts you thought were safe
From your vaulted heart
Like leaching away your vibrant blood
Sucking up your love

Welcome me into your house of peril
Let me steal a kiss
A taste of your lip
And from your soul a sip

    A very intense write this is and also a most passionate one.
    Reminds me of a love story told with such vibrancy and
    openess. Living in a car and loaded down with emails. Stealing
    thoughts is a good line. Enjoyed this. (Report) Reply

    Yes, excessive email in a car at the end of a graveled road would make anybody insane.

    as a vampire
    he sucks her blood
    from your hearted love
    and turn strong, astonished
    with the strength of the current
    clouds your eyes and drown
    in a endless red river!

    We all live in houses of glass it's our souls and hearts that are opaque. A very deep poem which needs reading several times if not many times to get its meanings of which there are many Great poem.10/10 BB (Report) Reply

    If you're eating souls, you're on a low-cal diet. You could gain weight gorging on our paranoia though.
    Diabolical but very entertaining! (Report) Reply
