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.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
