You needed me

Like a couch needs a lazy man 

Like a wedding dress needs a bride

Like a doll needs a friend 

Like an orphan needs a home 

Like a shoe needs to be worn

You needed me 

Like the oxygen you breathe 

Till you needed me no more 

So you moved me out like a broken couch 

You gave me out after your wedding night 

Put me in a box like an old doll

Put me in boarding school like a child you never loved

Showcased me in the next yard sale like the shoes you never wanted 

Feeling used and abused

Thinking “what’s left to do”

Stranded on the the highway 

Hoping someone will come my way.
