Treasure Island

scarlette Phoenix

(1987 March 25 / Cape Town)


Early mornings and Late nights
Your were always too busy leaving
Yet wonder why we have so much fights
Never home with me, but always tripping

Claiming to love me
but the truth I see
you just loved the trophy
I came to be

Having to jump
at your beck and call
But never there for me
When I trip and fall

You think bringing home the bacon
is what makes a home,
Always out, pleasing others
then wonder why i started to moan

Easy to love
is what you
think you are...
But you haven't got a clue!

You wanted a kept woman
Started to control my life
Got rid of everything I knew
Just to make me your wife

Now I've found someone
Someone new
and yes, I met him
When I was with you

He treats, e right
with honour and respect
Now you're mad, because you never did
or did you forget?

It's over now
Between you and I
This is my chance for happiness
That's right, Goodbye

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
