Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3)


Chronic Condition


It spreads fast
From my head to my toes and
I’m coughing and moaning
and running a fever

Darlin’ lovin’ you’s a chronic condition
And I’ve got it bad
And one of these days
it’s gonna tear me apart
Destroy me from the inside
out

Can’t eat can’t talk can’t sleep
Can’t do anything
But just lie here and wait
for it to subside

Darlin’ lovin’ you’s a chronic condition
And I’ve got it bad
And one of these days
it’s gonna tear me apart
Destroy me from the inside
out

But as I wait
it comes on faster
Spreading to fill
the inside of me

My heart’s beating too fast
It’s a chronic condition
I can see it now
Coming on faster now
as I think of you
I’m dying…
Ever
So
Slowly

Darlin’ lovin’ you’s a chronic condition
And I’ve got it bad
And one of these days
it’s gonna tear me apart
Destroy me from the inside
out

Won’t ever go away
I have nothing to stop it
from spreading
so fast

Darlin’ lovin’ you’s a chronic condition
And I’ve got it bad
And one of these days
it’s gonna tear me apart
Destroy me from the inside
out

Takes control of me
I follow it blindly
Not caring anymore
what will happen to me

Darlin’ you know
Lovin’ you’s a chronic condition
And I’ve got it bad
And I’m just waiting it out,
waiting for the blow
Cause one of these days
it’s gonna tear me apart
Oh, one of these days
it’s gonna kill me

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 »
