Writer’s Island prompt:  Another poem with song titles, this time from one of my favorite Beatles albums, Rubber Soul:


If I needed someone in my life
it wouldn’t be you, said Michelle

I’m looking through you, toward the future
and neither seem too bright

I need someone who says
Think for yourselfin my life

Don’t wait for me in the Norwegian Wood
You won’t see me there

I’ll drive my car far from you
My mind whispering, “Run for your life
