Treasure Island

Afrodita Alkline

(September 14 / Camarles)

You Live.


tonight I witnessed and felt the person I long ago fell
in love with.
With poetic prose you unleashed the being-
who for so long was chained by the leeching of another soul;
it brought me to tears, for such a beautiful creature
can not be held within a prisoning shell
Like a mouse you were constricted and swallowed whole
by the seducing snake.
Yet, you live, ripping apart the inside of the snake who
slithers and shrivels back
into the depth of my mind.

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
