Just a hug
I gave you a hug this morning
what a mistake i made,
I needed to feel safe.
You pushed me away
it hurt like hell
and I almost ran away.
I’m wondering why? What did I do wrong?
How does this change the way I feel?
I gave you a smile and made the tea,
you shoved it back in my face
I wish there was another place.
I’m asking why its so to and fro,
not understanding this ground below.
I open my arms to give you a hug, you pushed me aside
I’m finding it hard to see throw my tears.
