Treasure Island

Adieu


Beauty of a goddess
you truly are
I have searched far and wide
to be by your side
but i do apologize as I take my leave
in my eyes you are the most Beautiful
I would go above and beyond
just to see you happy
unfortunately I can't be what you need
not until I can overcome my demons
if I stay, you'll get hurt
if I don't you'll get hurt
I'd rather you get mad now
then hate me later
as although it hurts now
it would murder me if i was the cause
of the disappearance of your smile
hopefully our paths will cross one day
it may not seem clear right now
but what I'm about to do, I do for you
I love you
and for that reason alone
I bid you adieu

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
