Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Unfamiliar Territory


You're unfamiliar
territory

I turn myself upside
Down
inside
Out
can't explain my
Heart
anymore

I venture out
onto your paths
Take a deep breath
Test your waters
It's clear and cool
I close my eyes
and nothing can be better

Green eyes
The world's gone blind
Why can't they see that
I'm the one for you

You're unfamiliar
territory

I turn myself upside
Down
inside
Out
can't explain my
Heart
anymore

Clear skies, bright sun
Always my kind of weather
When I'm here
with you

My toes buried in the sand
Only have to move once...
Standing is a
new feeling
in you

You're unfamiliar
territory

I turn myself upside
Down
inside
Out
can't explain my
Heart
anymore

Your mountains,
your valleys
A world I haven't encountered
Your seas a cascade
of emotion
while your breeze unwinds the spirals of
my heart

My last gasp of land
you're pulling me in
I dive into the waves
and disappear

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
