Treasure Island

I watch you from a far like a stranger
Even from up close, you’re only a memory
Sometimes it’s like it never happened
Why does things have to be so complicated?
I feel free
All of the words we use to say
Has all just fade away to no promises
Nothing exist and nothing even matters

You look like a fool
Standing out there like your man
Saying beauty is all that makes me
But your a boy with no clue to what’s make me burn

Our love is like water
It nourishes and it keeps the flesh alive
But it flows in the stream and it dries out to nothing

I needed a man, but you didn't know how to be one
All you did was fall in love with the image of it
Now you’re just a stranger
And I don't even remember, all the memories just faded away
But you are sure to miss me; I can tell by the way you look at me
Now it’s just too late
You shouldn't have to break my heart to see that I care for you

Boy thank you for making me stronger

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—
