This is not a very good poem, because I had no real inspiration for it. I've never even somked before... It stemed for the desire to write. It is ok though, so I decided to post it. The ending needs a little work...peticulry the last stanza... So if you have any suggestions tell them to me.
Brutally honest reviews would be appriciated..

To Pass The Time

I spent all my nights
Waiting for you
And when you came back
You didn't want me.

You told me you loved me
And always would
When did you decide
You no longer needed me?

I cried for you
I lied for you
Until I became
Something I hated

Drinking, smoking
Getting high
All because I thought
Thats what you wanted

You said you wanted
To set me free
So I could live the life
You thought I'd love.

I loved you
I wanted you
It seems you only needed
to pass some time

  ok in the first stanza is sad you wait for someone and they come back and reject you that is troubling. it is even more depressing in the second stanza when you write “when did you decide you no longer needed me?” that is heart wrenching how some people treat others like they are disposable even when I am furious at a person and I cannot stand them breathing if they come back with a better heart I have no choice but to forgive them. I think everyone should be that way to some degree. But it doesn’t stop there as far as tumbling downward into despair with the third stanza how you say “until I become something I hated” how one can hate themselves because of what another does is another very sad account of human nature and yet I do feel that part, people are wicked sometimes when it comes to the consideration of others. the fourth stanza the drinking and smoking because it was something someone else wanted to do that is a shame. more sadness and the write wraps up with your words of devotion and in the end the callousness of the one that was loved. I have a couple of suggestions and one correction:

“[So] when did you decide
[that] you no longer needed me?”

“I cried for you
[even] lied for you”

“[That’s] what you wanted”

“I loved you [dearly]
[and] wanted you”

Anyhow a very sad write Jessie hope you have much better days, nicely done,

  I think that it's not as good as most of your other stuff because you didn't really feel it. The really great ones are the ones that really happen to you, the ones that you're emotionally invested in. It was good, but it was typical, you know? If you really meant it, there would be that certain spark to it. But I know all about just writing to pass the time...

  You're right the ending seems a little misplaced mainly because it doesn't flow with the same kind of energy that the rest of the piece did but other than that it was pretty good. Very nice.
