Treasure Island

Emma Jane Rae

(1988)

Is blood thicker than water?


You gave me life,
you gave me my blood,
you turned my name,
from gold to mud,
you told me,
you'd be true to your word,
you told me things,
i had never heard,
you gave me strength,
you gave me power,
back then i didn't realise,
your love would turn sour,
you told me,
you'd always be here for me,
but i was looking through thick fog,
and i just coulnd't see,
you were the one,
who gave birth to me your daughter,
it was me and your heart,
that you slaughtered,
you helped me run,
you helped me walk,
you taught me how,
to talk the talk,
and now your gone,
and it's only me,
and throughout my whole life,
i've never felt so lonely!

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
