Treasure Island

Ann Dewyze


Doesn't matter


Why would I fall for you?
With those ridiculous cargo pants,
You look like a Rambo wannabe,
Get off your high horse,
You’re shorter than me,
I’d never be able to wear heels,
It doesn’t matter that my heart beats faster,
Or that my palms feel sweaty,
It doesn’t matter that you look at me like I’m the only one,
You’re not my type, so take a hike
It doesn’t matter that you make me feel nervous,
And my breath catches when you’re near
You listen to Metallica and I listen to Beethoven’s 9th
Crazy is what you make me, with your stupid hat on
When the son isn’t even shining
It doesn’t matter that I can listen to you all day
Sit by your side and let the world go by
It doesn’t matter that that my mind plays tricks
And I see you everywhere,
In the supermarket
In the parking lot
In my favorite café
Let me be,
And close the door of my heart when you leave.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
