Treasure Island

Matthew Edan Oliver Palma

(February 2,1975 / Pateros, Rizal)

Away from you


Away from you, I lose myself
clinging to every soul my hand has felt
yet since it's not you I'd fall and break...

away from you, I hurt myself
declaring my love to every soul I've met
yet since it's not you I've cried and bled...

away from you, I wreck myself
looking for warmth in every arm I held
yet since it's not you I crash and burn...

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
