Treasure Island

Burn Me Out


Like a ghost..
I know you are there.
To my eyes...
Its seems unfair.

I can't find you.
With my hands.
Reach out for me?

I am weak.
I can't sleep.
I need you here.
Come to me?

I'm not scared.
I'm not crying.
Don't try to, think I'm lying.
Trust in me.
I'm a liar.
Burn me out.
In the fire.
Fill it up.
Gasoline.
Light the match.
Now I am free.
Now I am free.
Leave me be.
To rest in peace.

You ranaway.
You never planned to stay.
Why do I still not believe it?
Was this your personal secret?

My reflection.
Has disappeared.
No more smile.
Nothing here.

Hole where my heart used to be.
An explosion, blown away.
Never to be seen again.
You stole it, my friend...

I'm not scared.
I'm not crying.
Don't try to, think I'm lying.
Trust in me.
I'm a liar.
Burn me out.
In the fire.
Fill it up.
Gasoline.
Light the match.
Now I am free.
Now I am free.
Leave me be.
To rest in peace.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
