Treasure Island

I’ve Been Traveling…..


I’ve been traveling, for far to long
I’ve been a wanderer, with just one song
Out here, in the wilderness
I’m lost so far from home, as far
From the horizon, as the stars that shone
And now I'm here but I don’t know where
I’ve been missing you, but you just don’t care
Lost in my hearts wilderness so far from home
I beg and plead, please don’t run

I’ve been a trafficker, bringing sadness home
I feel I haveta, find and save my soul
In the middle of the city and I’m all alone
The windswept streets, froze my bones
My hands are empty and I’m on a one way slide
I’ve been traveling, to far and far too wide
Been pushed aside but I’ve battling
I don’t know where, but I’ll turn the tide
I’ve been missing you, but you just don’t care

I lost my direction and my way home
There are no street signs, for your soul
Just a vacancy left in your mind
Left living in a fantasy but its way too far
But this loneliness is way too hard
I’ve been traveling for far too long
I’ve lost my heart and lost my soul.
I feel so despised and fluently denied
This is why I always say goodbye

I’ve been traveling…..

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,
