Treasure Island

Christina Byrd

I Thought I Had İt All

Smart kid
Soccer machine
Very beautiful indeed
So kind and thoughtful
Funny but not obnoxious
They all said these uplifting things
Making my heart, but not my head swell
I had a lot going for me
Till you came along
You raised me up so high
I never thought about falling
But when I did the fall was bloody
writhing in pain while seeing you just watch
Being my tormentor without lifting a finger
Just being silent.
When I thought I had it all I realized,
I have not much at all.

And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
