all i ever wanted...

all i ever wanted...

A Poem by timcampbell

All I ever really wanted folded hands, a dream of something.
A good-bye before you leave and a gift to receive.
All I ever really wanted was a pair of lips, a pair of hips, to kiss; bliss.
All I ever really wanted was a cup of tea, your honesty, honest-to-goodness company.
A floor to sweep, a house to clean, a life to be.
I want a mouth to feed and someone who wants me, dinner and a movie; I want to be free.
I want to not want you and me.
I want raw body heat and poetry; I want to hear and see.
I want longevity and meat; I want my woman and I want my man.
I want to live by the sea and monopoly over my feelings which, to overtake, you are just too keen.
I want traffic in these hallowed halls, and I want your heavenly host.
I want me and you not you and me.
I want some say, I want some soul. I want like, I don't want love.
I want your answer because I want to ask you another question.
And I want you to know all about me, but I want them to know nothing.
I want reconciliation, and that's all I ever wanted.
