Treasure Island

Peggy Dotson


Can you handle me?


let's just be real about it
and stop playing games
do you think you can handle me
can you handle being my man

i don't need no boys in my life
other than the ones i got
i need a real man around
to make me feel real hot
not just that i want to feel special too
i want to know that in this world there is a love that is true
for me to have and to hold
in sickness and in health until we both get old
a love that i can truly call mine
someone to spend all my time

i really think i deserve this
as much pain as i've been through
I want to be able to say to him
sweetheart i love you

so you think you can handle me
with all my hopes and dreams
my insecurites as silly as they seem
my wants and needs as simple as can be
my independence and brutal honesty
my love, my heart, my mind, my soul
my abilty to rarely lose control
all these things i have and more
so are you really ready for what i have in store.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
