Treasure Island

Jessie Jett

(12/31/1989 / Maryland)

Baby Just Run

When you feel it,
and you feel it.
Tugging at your skin.
Puncturing your heart,
with massive tiny pins.
Baby just run,
run far away.
For you have survived many other days.

And in time, you'll feel it.
Run far away.
To forgive, and just live.
All love to stay.
Just stay.

Baby just run.
Run away now.
Free your heart,
run faster than you know how.
Baby just run.
Run far away now.

Cause when you feel it,
you've felt it.
But just letting go.
You feel it, and feel it.
Your heart really knows.

Baby just run.
Run away now.
Free your heart.
run faster than you know how.
Baby just run.
Let it run far away now.

    This needs a driving rhythm and base and someone with a rock and roll voice. I could so imagine Bruce Springsteen or Kenny Wayne Shepherd belting this out. Great stuff. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
