Buried Alive


Sometimes I'd like to dig a hole deep into the ground
And pull the dirt in over me
and stay buried safe and sound.....

It wouldn't make a difference
And I don't think that I'd be missed
There are some who would be better off
If I just did not exist.....

I am not what you bargained for,
when you came into my life
You wanted to find happiness
Instead I bring you strife.....

Often times I cause more trouble than I'm worth
I'd be better off in heaven than I am here on earth.....

I need to face the fact that I'm reaping what I've sown
There is nothing I deserve, except to be alone.....

Sometimes I'd like to dig a hole deep into the ground
And pull the dirt in over me
and stay buried safe and sound.....

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
