Wish I Was What You Need Me To Be

She's probably nice, and she's beautiful

The things that I think of her are awful

I'm afraid she'll end up breaking your heart

And if that were to happen I'd fall apart

 

I'm afraid she'll hurt you and that's not okay

I don't want her to take you away

Because you mean the whole world to me

I wish I was what you need me to be

 

I ponder these things in the night

They cause me to wake up in fright

I don't know how I'd live  without you

I really don't know what to do

 

I'm afraid she'll hurt you and that's not okay

I don't want her to take you away

Because you mean the whole world to me

I wish I was what you need me to be

 

You're my everything and I want to be yours

Sometimes I cry about it behind closed doors

Cause all I seem to do is fail

As I struggle to walk down this dark trail

 

I'm afraid she'll hurt you and that's not okay

I don't want her take you away

Because you mean the whole world to me

I wish I was what you need me to be

    "I wish i was what you need me to be" are words which tear at the soul.

    It is hard to face up to the reality that if you are not already what your partner wants/needs you to be, then you never will be.
    How fulfilling it would be to find a person who sees you as who they want/need.
    However, just letting go of the partner who makes you feel second rate/unfulfilled will at least allow you to regain some self esteem and place you in a position where you are able to look for the right person. Reading your words it is clear your partner is abusing your love and affection with another person.

    Heart wrending words from you today.

  • ANGELA & BRIAN

    HI "BC" Thanks for a very elegant Poem with good meter ! Six neat quatrians with a consistent Rhyme Pattern aabb ccdd etc. This beautiful structure hides a sad & angry message about LOVE spurned ! I (ANGELA) am 30 and I had similar experiences in my teens and 20's. Men I liked who were Friends but we were never an Item. Often they were seduced by a BIMBO (I am Serious & Professional : Physiotherapist) but I can let my hair down and be passionate when appropriate ! The tragedy is Affairs with Bimbos are transient and leave Men dissapointed. I was looking for a mature Relationship : Love & Engagement etc. My Fiancee : BRIAN : understands me and He knows "I am what He needs me to be" We have a lot in common and plan to be married @ Easter 2020. Im from Essex UK as is Brian but I am in New Zealand on a Work Exchange until October 2019. 11,500 miles is a long way : BUT : it has made our love grow stronger ! There is a Man (like BRIAN) out there for you : Im praying you will find each other : very soon !
    AMEN Blessings through Poetry : ANGELA 🧡
