Hang On

I hurt you, I know

I got crazy sometimes, that’s sure

Your scolding annoyed me, most often

You suck at everything, I always say

But baby, I love you even then.

I am sick and tired, I think so

I went wild for most of the time, I say

You’re a brat, and I scorned you for that

You run back home, I’d prod you 

But baby, I’ll miss you when you’re gone.

I needed a break,  on this heartache

I can be gone myself and never comeback

Your smile is all I need to make it all go away

You are what I always dreamed of to have

So baby, please don’t give up on me.

‘Cos I can never make it through without you.

  1. A good take and poem on today’s prompt Mich. In most relationships there is a point where we feel we are hanging on and those feelings and frustrations come through in your poem.

  2. Love this because we are all imperfect and do stupid things at times, But forgiving and often overlooking these flaws and idiocincrisys is vital in any relationship. People can’t help but be themselves, their flaws included. Your words show this well.
