Treasure Island

William Montgomery


A tale of death


i am alone in a prision cell i spend each nite crying like a little girl awaiting my departure to the gates of hell i have commited a crime now all i can do to kill time is rhyme.

I have watched as my heart has faded to black its like it has started to crack split in two becuase of what i have done to you...my heart aches every time that i see your face but i look away to avoid disgrace.

Why did things have to end this way we could have stayed together and been happy and got married one day and had a kid on the way but no you had to run of with another guy and watch as i started to cry iam not gonna lie its like you took a knife to my heart and tore it apart.

Now iam paying for my mistake and sitting here waiting my fate iam on death row now only 20 minutes until i die but still i try to be a tough guy as the tears trickle down my face i say my last good bye to the human race....my head shaved...i begin to wave at every one who came to see me die today.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
