Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

A New Start


The toughest challenge I'd ever had to face was moving on
Searching for a way to make this into a right
Gone through days alone just longed to feel your touch
Silly of me isn't it, yet I can't accept the reality
Not accepting that it's over
Instead I give myself unrealistic fantasies
that one day we'll get back together
Maybe we had our time and unfortunately it has passed
Happy endings only happen in fairy-tale stories
nothing in life last, Instead of going back to stage one
I must close the chapter completely
Now ready to grow and enter another chapter of my life
Looking back I have to learn,
you only get better from past mistakes
I want out of emotional withdrawal and away with the pain
Not to go into judging they who I feel
hold no candle to the past lover
Need to focus more on me and what I may want and need
I need to know what it is
I'm willing to give another person
And once I'm sure of that
I will find that partner who better suits me

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
