Treasure Island

Dark Haunting Memory7


it was all way too quiet
and you never called my name
so i stood up and i turned around
my heart broke as i walked away
from your silence that was too loud
i couldn't speak from all the pain
and a single tear left my eye
i knew things would never be the same

all i ever wanted was
for you to fight for me
to realize all that I'm worth
and to find a way to breathe
but you never could say sorry
for tearing me apart
and leaving you behind
broke what was left of my cold heart

did you say you loved me before?
cuz i don't remember anymore
did you say you want me to come home?
cuz with you i always felt so alone

i remember when you were sleeping
all i could do was lie awake
and cry alone in the darkness
from the things neither of us could say
and i swear to God i loved you
and that's why i always stayed
but you pushed me way too far
and so i had to walk away

i always saw the good in you
when everyone else saw the bad
and i helped you to make it through
the hardest times you ever had
so tell me all your reasons
to treat me like you did
i never really deserved this
i need a chance to live

did you say you want me back?
cuz i can't hear you anymore
did you say you loved me too?
cuz i can't hear you anymore

so cheers to all the things you never said
i'll drink this cup to make your face leave my head
all that you are now to me
is a dark haunting memory

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
