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

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
