He Said He Likes Me

He said he likes me


Never did I care

Never did I want

To be liked

To be cared for


A strong independent women

Was what i claimed myself to be


Never to fall prey

Never to cry tears

Like my mother

Like my father


You said you liked me

That you'd take care of me


You chose your timing right

The time I was at my lowest

All I wanted was

To be loved

To be cared for


I said I liked you

'Cos you liked me first

If things go right

Would I change

Would I like you less


If I did

Would you still like me

Fight for me

Or would you let me go

This is a good poem and I think it has a certain message. I think it speaks to me in a way that the girl lacked love in her life as her parents did not portray it. So when she finally found someone that could care for her and give her that love she easily fell prey and liked him fast. However, she is in doubt and is afraid that "what if" things change. Would he still love her or maybe he would abandon her like what her parents did?
