I’m The One You Want - Poem by Charlie F. Kane

If you want someone to be there for you,
If you want someone to take care of you,
If you want an old-fashioned lover,
Then here I stand-
Then I’m the one you want.

If you want some kind of laureate,
To write about your eyes,
Or some kind of scribe,
Hidden beneath a disguise,
Then I’m the one you want.

If you want some kind of sacrifice,
Or just another passage of rites,
Or someone who won’t leave you alone,
Who’d walk the desert sands for you,
Then I’m the one you want.

The void is too big
And the gap too empty,
And these thoughts I can’t control,
And these promises I made to you,
I doubt if I can keep.

But a guy never got the girl,
By begging on his knees,
Crawling in the dirt
And singing your praises,
He's not the one you want.

So if you want a guy,
Who can’t pick up his voice to sing,
And sticks pins in that voodoo doll
Of the guy that isn’t him,
Then I guess I’m the one you want.
