I Want - Poem by Denver Fredericks

I want, the impossible I ruthlessly chase
The dreams the goals the aspirations
Sweating heartache, living regret, and anguish
All to fill the need to have what I want

I want you but only after you leave
Filling the gaps with mannequins of you
Unreasonable, uncompromising stubborn
Just to satisfy my craving for what I want

I want to be left alone and yet worshipped
Adorned praised and to be constantly waited on
The dichotomy of my Libran existence
In full effect because of what I want

I want the ridiculous the impossibly incredible
The life and money the joys and fame
Grandeur splendour but frown on Pin
Only the bed of roses is what I want
