Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

Hey, Ex-Lover


When you had me
Things just didn't work
I belong to someone else now
You keep yourself hanging on
it brings you nothing but heartaches
I've gotten over you, so go ahead, get over me
Set yourself free and start a brand new life
You can't really love me
when it was you who'd flee
Nothing said seems to affect you
You'll never have me as you want
and it won't, won't stop your pursuit of happiness

Hey, Ex-lover
you tell me you still care
you don't care a thing about me
Are you even aware
everything you do is for your benefit
discarding my happiness to satisfy your needs
Your heart is so consumed with greed
don't keep calling and texting my cell
or leave voicemails raising your hell
I'm happy without you
find yourself someone new
I really wish you well

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
