Treasure Island

Michael McParland


I'm so sorry I'm not better.
God knows I wish I looked much better.
I'm sorry I'm not more interesting.
If I were, I'm sure you'd find that in your heart you'd be more kind.

I'm sorry I'm not what you need.
From inside it makes me bleed.
I've tried to make you see
that for true love you could do no better than me.
I'm truly sorry you don't agree.
From all these feelings I want to flee.

I'm so sorry I'm so strange.
I truly wish I weren't deranged.
At the snap of fingers I would change.
For your love backwards I would bend.

I'm sorry for who I am.
My whole life is such a sham.
Ever since I began,
I knew I would never be a man.

I'm sorry you were in my plan.
When it comes to loving me you never can.
So I say for now and then,
I'm sorry I'm not the man.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
