All I want

In the end

All I want

Is what I want-

Her,

Sleep,

Peace,

Quiet

In my mind,

Less

Restlessness,

The smell of her deep in my lungs, and the feel of her in my arms and beneath my fingertips, shivering and trembling, asking me to hold her tighter.

I don’t

Want

Much,

Just what I want

And ache for.

The silence

Of mind

And body

To deafen the voices

Of doubt

And fear

Long enough

To allow sleep

A chance to embrace

Me

And make me feel

Wanted

Once again.

I really don’t want

Much…

Just what I want.
