Where Was Your Love? - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Where was your love?
When I needed your love
Where were your hugs?
When I was soaked in my sobs

Where was your love?
When I needed your love
Yours was never near
Nor were your wandering ears
As you were hardly ever there

I will rather talk about this now than later
A fire can be quenched by not only water
People speak of no smoke without a fire
I speak of hate born not just by greedy desire

You haunt me, a ghost from the past to boast
Where was your love when I needed your love?
Where were you friend when I need you most?
You gave me the shoulder along with the shove

Where was your love?
When I needed your love
Where was your care?
When I cried rainy tears

With shattered dreams on broken wings
Where was your love when I needed your love?
When I lost the will to sing a simple octave
What mattered to you were your lousy flings

With a thin line between love and hate
My dear old friend, my dear old mate
Let me be clear and completely straight
Love has disappeared at a very fast rate
