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 Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
