Treasure Island

Manonton Dalan

(virginia, usa)

...but i'm nothing to you


you always tell me
what’s broken yesterday
chanting of hateful memory
yet you never ask
how am i doing today

i listen with my wits almost dry
but i still go with you in comfort
cause i’m your rocking support
who never ask you why

there are times it’s cyclistic
i pause a moment and you’re quick
to say ” i’m mumbling with tune”
don’t worry i become your own

    hey dis is a great piece.
    we care for someone, because we love him/her..
    and sometimes we wonder if they care for us too, in the same way we do?
    but it doesn't matter, as long as we're sincere..
    but we gotta give our best, so that later we wont regret..
    thanks. dan. (Report) Reply

    Love is manifested in so many different ways in our lives.The care, dependence and freedom of speech are all truly those ways to give you the fragrance of life.
    Wish you enjoy it a lot. (Report) Reply

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:

Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
