Treasure Island

I Lost You


I got you a present,
I wrapped it in gold.
I asked you to keep it,
It cannot be sold.
It was my love,
It was only for you
But you took it
And threw it
And made it no good.
So I found a bottle
I started with one
Tilted my head back
Then ended with none.
Let them sink into
My body and soul.
It doesn't matter
When your love is no more.
I see them around me
The memories spinning
Like a carousel
Of your voice, it's you singing.
You're singing your heart out
I thought once for me,
But the truth had been hiding
It was my fantasy.
I've done all I could.
My time had been wasted
The feeling of love
For a little was tasted.
Now we have nothing.
Like a feather and dust.
Clean up what's left.
Then get back up.
Walk away from the past
And look straight ahead
Let go of my memories
Cause your feelings are dead.

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,
