Treasure Island

I will be OK


I am stepping out on the town
for the first time in a while
Looking for love or something close
or something to make me smile

I have been alone for three whole weeks
staring at these four walls
wondering when he’ll come back
if he’s coming back at all

He’s been gone too long to cry
and I don’t remember how
that’s what I keep saying
that’s what I tell myself

I know the sound of slamming doors
I’ve heard it a few times before
I know the sound of him walking out
saying he aint coming back no more

but being alone in this house
is really not as bad
as being alone with him home
always upset and mad

Don’t worry for me I'll be ok
It will stop hurting after two or three straight
I never expected he would tear me apart
but I will drink myself through this broken heart

He’s been gone too long to cry
and I don’t remember how
that’s what I keep saying
that’s what I tell myself

I need another tequila
to pry him from my heart
I know its not the answer
but its a darn good start

I hope to wake up without him
rolling around in my head
I don't need him there
or sleeping in my bed

He’s been gone too long to cry
and I don’t remember how
that’s what I keep saying
that’s what I tell myself

I need another tequila
to pry him from my heart
I know its not the answer
but its a darn good start

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
