Sorry for Needing You (Poem #31)

“It hurts to be needed.”
It was all you could mumble
after I said:

“I need you, to make myself wanted
so I can have someone to turn to
when he tells me it’s time for me to go

I need you, so I can feel pretty
so I can feel like I am enough
after he talks nonstop
about the girl who came before me

I need you, so that when he cheats
I’d still be able to forgive him
so that when I get played
it still wouldn’t hurt as much
knowing that there is another soul that I’ve touched

I’m sorry that it has to be this way
I am sorry for needing you
because I am afraid to deal with the pain I will be in,
if I ever lose him.”

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
