Treasure Island

Nick Kler

(07/09/1967 / USA)

Alone


Now that I'm back to being alone
Stripped naked to the bone
Decayed by deception and the lies
Nothing here left for me to cry

I walk these streets bare and dark
Carrying with me a worn-out heart
Darling, I think I'm already finished
I know this is just your start....

My fortune of scars and dust
Nicely patches up my crust
I'm contemplating real hard
Taking them with me to the yard
Or letting it go in a fiery flow
Who knows where i'd go!

Been longing for a trace of light
Ever since I was a little child
My eyes are really tired now
Can hardly keep them in sight

I have no strength left in me
I feel so tired to face the light
Baby, It was an awfully long night

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
