Treasure Island

Morgan Siegel

Who Am I?


...Glistening spheres dance merrily...

As I look into this portal.
All I see is...
An expressionless cast.
Staring into naught...

...Pale silver trails away...

The dark swallows.
Yielding a dim glow.
A pale composure.
Plain yet alarming...

...Smooth touch stroke...

Faded eyes show the dream...
A hopeless longing pierces.
Stone set features unfold all...

...A numbing breath casts distress...

Cold set ivory like a great colossi.
Empty faces stare back...
Dull light slowly fades.
A raw touch airily caresses...

Who Am I?
I am the one always behind you.
I am the one who looks when you least suspect.
I am the cold touch you feel.
I am the voice you hear...

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
