POEM: All I Ever Wanted 150 150 Jason Stadtlander

By Jason P. Stadtlander

 

All I ever wanted was your loveDon't try to change me
All I ever needed were your arms
All I ever needed was you to believe in me

You held my hand, walked with me
You had your vision of what to be
Your plan was a target to achieve
And I was your spike to drive home

But, all I ever wanted was your love
All I ever needed were your arms
All I ever needed was you to believe in me

I didn’t want to be a nail
To be hit on the head
To be twisted and turned
Forced to fit in a world that wasn’t

Why couldn’t you see that all I ever wanted was your love
All I ever needed were your arms
All I ever needed was you to believe in me

Your words were like ice
Your truth like teeth
Your tone cutting deep
Chewing through my heart

When all I ever wanted was your love
All I ever needed were your arms
All I ever needed was you to believe in me

Frozen are the plains of my soul
Glass are my eyes all fogged and forgotten
Cold is the fire left burning at home
And where is the man? Where is the man that I knew?

All he ever wanted was your love
All he ever needed were your arms
All he ever needed was you to believe in him
