You didn't

by Phil   Jun 27, 2017

You said you needed me
when infact you
needed the thrills
and the time I spent
on you so that you
didn't feel all alone.

You didn't need me
as much as you needed
to prove to yourself
that you didn't need

    Being used is the worst. Adding you to my fav poets, your words are witty, sharp, and honest.

    Oh, Phil. Sorry to hear this. But, you captured the whole thing in this piece. This hit me in the face, maybe because I'm guilty of this some time in my life. Love is never easy. :-(

    There's little worse in the tricky game of love than knowing we have been completely used.
    If this is literal, Phil, then I am sorry to hear of you're suffering.

    All the best as ever,
