Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

A New Start


The toughest challenge I'd ever had to face was moving on
Searching for a way to make this into a right
Gone through days alone just longed to feel your touch
Silly of me isn't it, yet I can't accept the reality
Not accepting that it's over
Instead I give myself unrealistic fantasies
that one day we'll get back together
Maybe we had our time and unfortunately it has passed
Happy endings only happen in fairy-tale stories
nothing in life last, Instead of going back to stage one
I must close the chapter completely
Now ready to grow and enter another chapter of my life
Looking back I have to learn,
you only get better from past mistakes
I want out of emotional withdrawal and away with the pain
Not to go into judging they who I feel
hold no candle to the past lover
Need to focus more on me and what I may want and need
I need to know what it is
I'm willing to give another person
And once I'm sure of that
I will find that partner who better suits me

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
