Treasure Island

Ramblings


As grey cloud haunt the sky
the gray clouds inside my head taunt me
I've never been good at sealing the deal with a hook
I belong in the same well as middlemen
For I'm only great in the middle
never at the ends
Make it into a joke if you wish, I don't care
I don't care...
yes I do
I care about something
I care for a woman old in years but not a day over 26
and I admit, I admit I've developed a harmless crush
Just ask her, the proof is in my wide-toothed smile
I care about someone, someone
Scarlett Jade
but I call it karma
she calls it whatever
while her parents call it justice
that I will never be with her
Eh it wouldn't be the first time I've dealt with this sorta thing
I care I care
for the birds in the trees
for earthly things
Man, this religious thing is getting to me
I don't even have a religious home
I belong to no one religion
If there is so many of them created
why can't aspects of each be true
instead of everyone pointing a bony finger in blasphemy
Oh well, guess I'll never know
but here I am spilling messed up
random stuff
about what?
Eh nothing
Yeah I am a loser...
yeah I am a loser...
but oh well
I wear the label proudly
I say it as a means of saying I'm just a prince in waiting
while others say it as well
I'm a loser I guess
but oh well why did I say anything
Silence is golden and I have overstayed my welcome
so good day so long
until I get my head on straight
Adios

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,
