Treasure Island

Rebecca Paul

(September,10 1994 / Pennsylvania, USA)

I Needed You

I needed you.
You weren’t there.
My mother who
Just didn’t care.
I lied for you.
I took the fall.
It was all for you.
I lost it all.
I thought you said
You always would
Love me like
No one else could.
Then something happened
That you didn’t expect.
Threw off your plans.
You lost my respect.
So here’s my present
For my lonely mother’s day.
I hope that you like it.
Hope you hear what I say.
I needed you.
You weren’t there.
My mother who
Just didn’t care.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
