Believe Me!

Believe Me!

A Chapter by Rose

I only wanted you

To steal from you

To take away

You're most precious gems

That thought never ever 

Came to me

 

You're a rich and wealthy man

I can see it in your eyes

You know what it's like

To be first class

You have always

Looked down at the poor

 

In disgust you were

Looking at the worthless, dirty and smelly

Bodies of the poor

But not me

You knew me

You knew me well

I was poor

But never did you look at me

Like that

 

But your friends

And family looked at me

In the eye

Like they wanted to spit on me

Choke me

To get me out of there sight

 

I never stole from you

My mind on my heart

I would die for you

Its love

That surrounds me

You're all I want

You're all that I am

Desperate for

 

I maybe poor

I may be taken over

By hunger

I may wear clothes

Of a tramp

But I have never

Begged you for money

 

My soul is white

Plain white

Not a spot of darkness

I am innocent

 

Ask, ask and ask everyone

Ask your family

Ask your friends

Where are your precious gems?

That was put in my room

Not by the hands of me

 

The filthy hands

That robbed the gems

Belong to someone

That wants me dead

 

They have got their chance

It's my turn

You can watch me

With guilt in your face

Hang in the gallows

How beautifully tragic...

Love the tale in this as sad and desperate as it is of someone needing so badly that they start taking what isn't there's.

This is a wonderful poem that describes even how now the classes between the rich and the poor can be. Forbidden love. Great write.

Oh what a brilliant write. It applies to current times too. I didn't read your authors' note until I had already read your poem. Great job!

Very tragic tale but a true one. I enjoyed this, I think you did an excellent job writing on this subject in your story/poem.

What a great story this is! I really enjoyed it. It's like a stream of consciousness or perhaps they're saying this out loud.
