Treasure Island

My Anna is Gone

Anna is gone
I see her mangled in a heap
With a woman who looks like her above her

She is similar but hides behind her masks
This anna does not love me
This anna is not my anna

I hear the real anna cry in the spirit
But the fake anna makes her think lies
Why must my anna be gone?

I want to hold my anna who loves me back
This anna has no interest in me
This anna does not like me like my anna

I put the roses on her grave and cry at night
For my anna is gone from me
My anna is no longer existing

This demon stole my anna from my heart
Stole her from my life completely
I miss my anna so very much

But this, this is not my anna
This is a monster that loves no one
This is not the anna I grew to love

Oh God, where is my anna?
Why must you take her from my life?
I give her unto you Oh God, for my anna is gone

She died the night her love stole her heart from me
He stole my future children, my future wife away from me
For this I will weep in the night, for my anna Is gone

I see her body lieing in the grave
As I sit here and pray for her to come to life
And realize that God has brought her to be my wife

But my anna is gone and this is not my anna
This impostor is from the pits of hell
This impostor stole my anna away from me

I leave the roses and walk away hearing cries in the night
Of my anna that lost this demonic fight
She is gone, she is dead, oh my anna, my anna is dead

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
