Treasure Island

Pete Rivera

(A special place)

Ailment


Once
You were close to my heart
So close
I thought we would never be apart

What were you thinking?
Did I do something wrong?
I must have done something
Because I haven't heard from you, in so long

I see now
That our friendship was a lie
Like a feeble infant child
Ready to curl up and die

The concept is pain
I swore I wouldn't shed a tear
Even though I lost something
I lost very dear

You are an ailment to my soul
I frown whenever I see you
Yet we were so close
There was nothing I could do

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
