All I Wanted & Other Poems

 

All I Wanted

All I wanted was to love you,
To be beside you every day.
All I wanted was to love you,
But all you did was walk away.

All I wanted was to kiss you,
To caress your soft lips with mine.
All I wanted was to kiss you,
But then you left without a sign.

All I wanted was to know you,
To learn about you all my days.
All I wanted was to know you
You made us go our separate ways.

All I wanted was to love you,
I said you stole my heart away.
All I wanted was to love you,
I lit your heart, you walked away.
 

Be Prepared

Child in care
Why’s your dress on the bed
At the end of the day?
This is what she said:

Just in case
My dad comes with his gun
In the middle of the night
And we have to run.
 

Modern Dating

Can I say I like your smile
when I don’t even know your name?
I just saw you at a party
but do you maybe feel the same?

Even though you have my number
I’d be a fool to hope you’d call.
Perhaps I’ll see you round somewhere:
they say this world is very small.
