Treasure Island

For Them


Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I’m about to say.
As I never knew this potion was poison
But I can live another day

I see pain, I see need
You’re all liars and thieves
Abusing power with greed
I had hope for you I believed
But, I’m beginning to feel completely deceived

You promised me the sky
Then tossed me like a stone
You wrapped me in your arms
Chilling me to the bone

I know I’m not perfect but no-one ever is
But it don’t give you the right to take what you did
You’ve left me, leaving me broken in deep unrest
I know you resent me, but you stole my memories
And my heart from my chest

You promised me the sky
Then tossed me like a stone
You wrapped me in your arms
Chilling me to the bone

There’s truth in your lies
But doubt in your faith,
All I have left is
What you didn’t take
You turned your back and left me to waste

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
