I Needed More This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Where were you

When I needed you?



A hug and a smile

Was all I ever wanted

But harsh accusations

And twisted words

Was all I ever got



A father was what

You claimed to be

But something dark

And fearful was what

You were to me



I always tried my

Hardest to please you,

My so-called father

Even though it meant

Nothing to you in the end



And when the tables

Were turned you never

Came through

So how can you even question

Why I've stopped loving you?
