Treasure Island

Me, Myself and I

(12 october 1974)

Then You Left


So then you left…


In a heap, lying on the floor,

I lie, panting, wanting so much more,

For you have all but gone,

The fairytale is over...

And I start to humm our song,

The erotic thoughts I still think,

Our glasses we drank from,

Are still lying in the sink,

Your smell on my clothes,

Makes me start to think,

But now your gone,

I hear the door slam,

And the taxi pull away,

And its all over,

Over before I had time to blink,

What the hell happened? ?

Or did I say out-loud what I think? ?

    It pierces the heart my fello poet, yes! when the person with whom you share your joy and sorrow with, suddenly disappears. It happens often, and one must let go of such. Indeed, good friends we have, good friend's we lost. Beautiful and emotional piece of work....well done! (Report) Reply

    A fairly good poem, but it didn't meet my expectation of what I wanted from 'the most popular poet'! (Report) Reply

    I like it, I really do - quite a powerful emotion conveyed here.
    Harmless suggestion: Correct your to you're in the following line:
    But now your gone,
    It may flow a little smoother for meticulous folks like me if you do. Still, though, thumbs up otherwise. (Report) Reply

    Is it possible that Me, Myself and I became popular because of your name Me, Myself and I which is a famous movie in America, and if people are searching google for it - they will see your profile. Maybe you should try to go with your real name- and see the real love for your work. - It is fair also that way for others. (Report) Reply

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 »
