Poem: Not Good Enough For You


All the things that I may do
Will never make me good enough for you
There will be some dumb thug
Pass you over for a drug
You run to me when he falls
I’ll wipe your tears until he calls
Temporary comfort is all I can do
Kick me from your bed when you are through
Say that you’re sorry to do this to me
You’ll quickly forget all that you see
Blinded by past that you won’t deny
Leave me behind, because you won’t try
My heart on loan until you’re gone
Used to this dance, I’ve heard this song
I try to capture all that I can
Memories to hold, but not your hand
