Treasure Island

*Fret When You Lie*

Fret When You Lie

You fall…, we rise..,
Oh no, there’s no need to apologize
You see, we are living life with a better capacity.
Your lips unfurl shaking cold from lies told and untold
You lips are quick to set fire to words evolved,
Beyond your comprehension you’ll find confusion and a haze

From my words intellectual you’re suddenly wrapped in a maze
For you broke my heart the bloody bits are spitting out
So your grave is the maze of words you refuse to uphold
Backtrack, retract, again a lie to escape your linguistic cage

Your mind the rat you the fly,
Forever searching for effervescent words to buy
To the links rattling the cage as an alibi,
Too much noise for me to retire, so your dreams I take and in front of you id set the torch to the paper,
Because I’m still the greatest yes the greatest, to hell with it lets set this cage on fire

Wrapped inside are my family dying but yet I don’t flinch at there fiery attire and screaming, words they should speak but it’s to late goodbye my fire fly lies

Family be family until they neglect the one with the brain divine and I my time, it’s your time yes time for you to leave me,

You’re burning screaming on fire on fire, my liar liar, family didn’t see this transpire liar liar

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
