Treasure Island

Emily Reid

(Aspen, CO)

I want, I hate, I envy, I wish, I need, I'm tired, I'm sorry


I want to cry
I want to scream
I want to tell you mostly
I hate that I’m so afraid of everything
I hate that you the one thing I want most but can’t have
I hate that you don’t want me like I want you
I wish I could use my own lies I use to cover up the pain you left
I wish I were good enough for you
I wish you needed me like I need you
I envy the way this hasn’t hurt you at all
I envy her
I envy that you don’t understand what this feels like at all
I want to hurt you
I want to be with you
I want this nightmare to be over
I wish I could make things how they were before
I wish I could change time
I wish I could change you
I wish I could have hurt you before you hurt me
I wish I could have given you the letter when I wanted
I need you out of my heart
I need to start doing things for me
I need to find someone new
I’m tired of hoping aimlessly for you
I’m tired of wanting something I can’t have
I’m tired of hurting me for things that aren’t my fault
I’m sorry you don’t think I’m good enough
I’m sorry I defended you when everyone else was right
I’m sorry I couldn’t make you happy
I’m sorry I fell head over heels in love with you
Funny though how you never once said sorry for hurting me,
For breaking me,
For not loving me…

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
