Poem, "All You Wanted "


we all have a dark side.

You just don't want to free it,

but believe it,

you got one too.

All you ask for is the bright side.

The way I see it

you just neglect

to push on through.


I like to play

in the dark

after a trying day.

But remember?

You asked me

to stay.

Infatuation is

a wonderful drug.

But it fades away.

You said you needed me

to read expansive praises,

words and phrases

that framed the part of Me

you loved to see.

Today, as I watched

you walk away

I realized...

All you wanted
was the Poetry.

-Paul David Humphrey
