All I Really Want.... - Poem by Viola Grey
this is my mind -
a light I cannot switch off
illuminating with clarity
the rusty demons of childish dreams,
the sad truth behind the smiles.
this is my heart -
walled up in this castle
created from sorrows past,
built by my radiating mind,
protected from the bitter dragons
of life's cruel fate.
this is my soul -
lying, naked, upon the dusty pavement
waiting for you
to cleanse me once more,
to cradle me in shadows
with your soft smile.
And you ask me...
What is it I want from you?
All I want is to enter your mind,
all I want is to touch your heart,
all I want is to breathe within your soul,
let each dull beat speak,
let the words be true.
I want you to pick up my soul,
cradle my heart,
fight the dragons
inside my mind.
All I really want....
