Treasure Island

Bad Timing

Maybe it’s a lesson to myself to not follow my heart and emotions at the same time but to listen to my conscience and to my best friends…
Bad timing, eh? Maybe I’ll overcome what I need to in order to be the person I am capable of being….just for him..if God wills it to be true…bad timing will fade away, depart from both of our lives and bring us that much closer to rapture….
For the moment I can’t do or say anything to bring him back
I don’t deserve to have his consideration until we both have cleared our lives of past regrets…

So here’s to you…my sugaboo, my snookems, my pookie, my knight in shining armour, my romantic flowerguy, my love, my friend…..

It was merely bad timing…
Not that I didn’t love you…
Not that I didn’t care for you…
Not that I meant to hurt you…
Not that I intended to leave you hanging…
I wanted to be there for you when you needed me most…
I wanted to love you with all my heart…
I wanted to build on our friendship like we spoke of doing…
But I was too blind to see…
Blind to what I truly felt…
To what was most important to me…
To who completely loved me for me…
Ignorant to see what I would lose…
And sightless to what I was bringing back into my life…
The nastiness, the unhappiness and sadness I wanted to rid my life of…
To the love I have for only you I will be true until our lives join together again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
