Treasure Island

Danny The Dreamer Boyd

Heavy On Hearts

'I see the parting tonight in our eyes,
Right before our way long due goodbyes.'

'This is not the end, we'll still be friends,
And I want you to know, it's not you; it's me.'
'If you could give me a second chance to make amends;
I promise I'll be a better man in no time, you'll see! '

'I really truly love you, but it just won't work,
Yet I shall never forget the magical moments we shared.'
'What about love at first sight, and that eternal spark?
What about your previous promises that to break you dared? '

'I knew I glimpsed something weird in your eyes:
That kindled the feeling that it's time for our goodbyes.'

'It aches that I've got to do this now,
And will even kill me when you're gone.'
'Then why not make it last somehow,
And pretend a kiss' a heartbreak undone? '

'I've given this a lot of thought,
And I'm afraid, it's already too late.'
And he was the one who dearly fought
For a lost cause, or a sealed fate!

'I felt a certain misdeed burning in your eyes,
When I walked in tonight thinking not of goodbyes.'

'We had a lot of fun, but this is going nowhere;
The guilt is just eating me up from the inside.'
And in that very moment his heart was all despair:
Knowing, alas, that love can't guilt abide!

'We had a good run, but this is where I get off.'
Smiling, 'Alright, just take good care.
I never had or will, never ever, have enough
Of you, that's why I'll always be there.'

'I know I'm the reason behind the tears in our eyes,
But tonight's the time to say such long due goodbyes.'

And every now and then she'd try and call;
Taking him for granted, that he's nowhere to be.
It's nice knowing you'll always be caught when you fall;
But I wouldn't forever count on such certainty!

He saw that very night the parting in their eyes,
And that hideous sight was heavy on his heart;
But despite knowing that it was time for their goodbyes,
He tried his best to stop one soul to be torn apart!

'I saw our world collapse that night in her eyes;
That's why I tried, and failed, to prolong our goodbyes! '

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
