Treasure Island

Carissa Thiessen

(January 26,1984 / Calgary, Ab)

Tonight is the Night


Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I will break free

Free from a life of sin
A life not worthy of your love

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
all will be made right

Right with myself
and right with you

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I tell you I love you

I love you with all of my heart
all of my soul and all of my mind

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
When I must say Goodbye

Goodbye to a chance with you
A chance that I blew

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I die

    Tonight has no choice.
    Just movements of the hart.
    It happens before and after you knows.
    With wet eyes and a sour hart.
    Stings of hiding lust come out at night,
    And in the day, with a clear brain, , , , , ,
    Reason.
    Will you look behind the closed blink, ? (Report) Reply

    'Tonight is the night I die' - shocking! ! ! So it's the second last poem, and I'm hooked! !

    Very powerful poem!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
