Treasure Island

Robert Wynn

(Thanks for stopping by!)


I'm not grounded well baby
Just craving alcohol
Thinking about it
Did you think I was ever here for you
I was lost thirty years
Found for fifteen
Married you and tried thirteen more sober
Fell off the wagon seven more

Between lost And found girl
Walking that straight line
Finding my nose with my finger
And finding it never was there
Between Lost And Found girl
Finding I'm lost to a craving
That keeps me from loving you true
Girl that's slap Between Lost And Found

So I'm back in the program
Got mixed emotions
My health is failing
My mind is broken
In so many pieces it looks like dust
Yet you say if I want you
You're the ground I've been missing
Somewhere Between Lost And Found

It ain't easy when you have
A craving for booze
And if your other half has it
You're really screwed
Some of us won't ever give it up
We've no quitters in our blood
But the best of luck to those who do
We're all somewhat

    Between lost and found and will always be searching.
    Always will be the craving... not for alcohol but for the place alcohol takes one to.
    As Loundain Wrainwright III said, there will never be a perfectly straight high.
    We seek that place, have visited it many times, but it does not exist.
    It is a ghastly graveyard of opened holes with a headstones already placed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
