Treasure Island

Airda Jones

(Sept.17,1988 / US)

Not Worthy of a Title

I stared at my hand
Wishing it to appear
Realizing how foolish I have been
To you in the past year

I've hinted and even whined
Hoping to get what I want
Never did you deny your love
Never did you, not once

Still I kept pushing
Selfish fool I've been
When will I learn?
When will it sink in?

You've given me more
Than a person should ever ask for
Touched me in a way that
I can only adore

Decorating me with shines
And kisses to spare
Showing me in every way
That you do so much more than care

I hate myself for thinking this
Thinking I deserve more than I own
When you're the one who deserves better
And I should be the one who's alone

This hand that has written love
Now disgusts me beyond belief
But as much as I write
I still cannot find relief

No, you don't deserve
What your finger craves night after night
And no, you don't deserve
To have this man in your life.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
