All I Wanted - Poem by Elizabeth Tyease Collins

As long as the days grow longer
and sudden tears shed that are prone,
I'll walk this Earth with my heart in a jar
And I'll live life alone.

When the days never seem to end
and I try my best to stay strong
nothing in this world could be as bad
as spending it alone.

In my bed I'm merely sitting here
writing this sweet and sad poem
meandering the dream of a broken dream
but still feeling so alone.

The voices in my head agree
that life isn't fair,
that they want to scream and grab onto
what really isn't there.
A life once so rich is now so bitter and prolonged.
What's the point of trying?
I'll end this alone.

So life will go on
and more tears will be shed,
a grief will fill the hearts
of the people that love me dearly
but watched me fall apart.
They line up dreary to my coffin with a stone
engraved with love
'You were never alone.'
and that's all I needed.

    Don't try to 'end this alone'. I promise you. There are thousands so men out there, that would DIE to stay forever with a woman like you. And I'm not saying that to be nice. I'm saying that because of my life experience and the people I've met. I know for a fact, that a thousands of man would loose their heads over a girl/woman like you. In fact, I wish I had the go and beauty that you have. And under other circumstances, I know we could have been friends. Kisses. (hug) (Report) Reply
