Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

You Did Do That

you really hoped
when you called my phone
that I'd, sympathize
with you
baby it's over
now leave me alone
and I'll start my life anew-ed

The situation it seems
just got a little crazy
you would secretly cheat
and it pushed me away just pushed me away
and when i think of what we both had
i'd shake my head and I would just laugh
my friends encouraging me
I rushed into this thing
it was a little too soon

funny how things went
I thought this was heaven sent
but the things you have done was hell
you did do that

you'll think of the times
playing over in your mind
until you realize i been good to you
and you've played me for a fool

sadly, you were to insecure
some days I wasn't even sure
communications between us was weak
things was much better off
when we hadn't speak
but to tell you the truth
I can't ever have love for you
being someone who would just seek
to have your cake
and try and eat it too

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
