Treasure Island

Raven Mcgovern


Words written with tainted tears


Your words are written on my face with mascara-tainted tears
You ripped out my pandoras box
Leaving with my hope
You are much like the young jabberwocky
Foolish and made up of only lies and only pretend
For your love was foolish pretend and only a lie
You said you loved me like the Great Gatsby loved Daisy
But you played Daisy an left with someone else
Leaving me Gatsby in the end; dead.
