All You

April 1, 2010ishabelle

I have to admit I did this poem with such haste, it feels so raw and unpolished. Anyway, I want to post this as my poem for today’s rally. I want to know how people will react to my poems if I write ones that are written in such a hurry. I know this may not be as tasteful as the others I’ve posted in the past, but I still wish you enjoy this. wink 🙂

All you could ever want
Is in front of you.
I am anything you want;
I am in front of you

All you could ever need,
I could give to you.
I can give all you need;
I’d give anything for you.

All you could long for
I would give to you only
All you could hope for
You’ll find in me only.

I want to be everything
That you could ever want,
Or possibly ever need,
What you long and hope for.

I will be…..

    until of course you lose yourself in their fantasy never really being you, which is the most special thing you can be…i like it raw and uncut…

    I think the “rawness”of this poem makes it expressive and clear. Powerful.

    I love how raw this is! It is so intriguing and the switch from “I am” to “I want to be” is fantastic

    Ishabelle, thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog recently. I’ve been busy with a sick wife. She’s doing much better and I read your beautiful poem to her. She loves it.

    I should be back to blogging regularly shortly and I hope to visit here more often.

      I am really sorry to hear that your wife is sick. I hope she gets well soon… 🙂 Best of luck to both of you… :0
