Treasure Island

Tragedy


Tragedy, tragedy,
pulling deep down inside me,
slipping further, and further still.

What a facade,
what a lie,
what a tragedy my dear.

You see the lines,
the scars,
the beauty.

How ugly it all is,
what a tragedy,
my lovely tragedy.

What a lie,
what a lie,
Lie to my face.

Bleed for a life,
scream for a feeling,
cry for help.

She's beautiful,
but she deosn't see,
what a beautiful tragedy.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
