Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

why now?


where you been? you want to know. and what I've done is not tell you
I don't want to hear it, not another night
You assume i'm doing wrong doesn't make you right
I know how bad I hurt you more than I do less
can't give you all of me like when I was my best
yes, it's too late now for us to settle any differences, i'm not willing to try
So just look into my eyes and imagine the words that'll departs my lips, goodbye
why now? why pretend that you cared all this time, when all along we were fading

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
