I Need You Now

by BECCA lessTHANthree   May 8, 2008


Where are you?
I need you now...
Well more like yesterday
Or the day before.

I need your voice
Your touch...
your presence faded quickly
and not a vestige of you remains.

And I'm so angry.
...But more hurt, more worried.
Are you okay?
What kind of person just disappears?

You're heartless,
So selfish.
So naive
And so mislead.

Come home?
Don't walk backwards,
I know where you're heading,
Please stop.

I was wrong...
But so were you;
Jerk.

Where are you?
I need you now...
Well more like yesterday
Or the day before,
I need you now.

    Hmm actually never saw a poem like this before, but i understand the reason behind it. the part thatjumps out at me is when you call him a jerk it seemed a little childish made you sound like idk 13 yrs old, and the repition of needing him and then callling him that showed a great deal of idk assurance withy yourself. great work i really did enjoy it. -

    these first few lines are great- so easily I can relate to them, and that hooked me right into the poem.
    I love your style- the short lines really show emotion, abruptness. the lines "I was wrong...
    But so were you;
    Jerk." show your confidence in writing, which is really great.
    The way you brought it back around to the beginning in the close was really wonderful. all in all, a great poem. keep writing!

    thanks ahead for commenting mine :)
