When One Wants

When One Wants - burning woman

My heart aches
I’m yearning.
Life’s simple mistakes
I’m burning.

Inside, endless conceptions
my thoughts of you.
Why? Damn it,
why must I hide my feelings aside?

Caught up in a place
where I can say that I’ve tried.
Held on to love
that surely has died.

I’ve cried and cried.
Take the pain.
Take the sorrow.
Make me happy.

Feed my tomorrows.
I am but a person,
who has walked lots of miles.

Am I not entitled
to endless happiness?
A face full of smiles?

    Liked this. We’re all deserving of a face full of smiles. We have to make smart choices.
