All I Wanted Poem by Susheela Alexiose

All I Wanted

Rating: 5.0

All I wanted was a gentle touch
Wrapped with love and care
All I wanted was to hear
A whisper in my ear
That you love me, don't fear.

A strong arms to protect me
A chest for me to hug
A shoulder for me to rest

Alas! all I got was just the opposite
All these years of my life
A huge gap has formed
Between you and me
A huge vacuum has developed
In my heart so deep
As it craved what it lacked
And was broken into bits and pieces

Being alone is the greatest pain
A soul can endure
Being cheated is the greatest ache
Any being can handle
Being neglected by own
Makes a person different altogether

Wow! I certainly don't understand the context of this poem, but I could identify myself to this emotional expression to some extent! Thank you for putting it in words beautifully!

I wanted to put a sad face emoji not realizing poets express their emotions in words not in emojis
