Treasure Island

You think that you got the Best of Me


I t is truly amazing two can go from friends to lovers and then to enemies
Why did you have to come into my life and steal my heart like thief in the night
I was young and innocent and full of love
You turned into me a person that is full of hatred and disgust

How could you use me?
You stole cupid’s arrow of love and you used to smite
What I thought that was a gift from the Lord above
As it turns out that you were full of lies and broke my trust

You think that you got the best of me
But I am so much stronger than you took me for
I did not realize how strong until you were out of my life
Now I have the choice to make, show love or hate

While there is some hatred built up inside of me
I prefer a life that is full of love and so much more
Even though you put me through so much strife
Thank you for finally letting me reach my true fate

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
