Treasure Island

Amne ElAbdallah

The game, I play

I never knew you had 2 faces,
I wish I was in so many other places.
Gosh, I can't believe I fell for you,
It's not just your fault, no it's mine too.

I was warned but I ignored it,
And now I'm only breaking bit by bit.
You put a smile on my face,
But I now know that, that won't always be the case.

You saw a part of me,
A part that I myself did not see,
And made me the happiest that I could ever be.
But maybe I just don't deserve your time,
I feel like I am in the middle of committing a real bad crime.

She loved you so much,
You didn't but you told her and saved her the hurting.
Then I for a reason or other,
Began to bother.
And now I think I love you more than any other.

I guess that's life,
I am physically and mentally drained because of how much I've cried,
I rather wish that I had died,
Instead of having to go through all this pain.
But yet I am alive and still playing this game.

Poem of the Day

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 »
