Maybe I'm asking too much.

All I Ever Wanted

by wethedreamers

All I ever wanted was a little house on a hill.

With homelessness a mess I'd never have to deal with again.

And in that little house, I'd like the greeting of a friend

...since companionship was always something I had only ever wished.

A friend or two who'd know when the time came to go.

Who'd embrace my quirks of an introvert and the need to be alone.

But then I'd want someone who would feel like a home.

Who would stay the night and would like to make me their own.

Who would prove that a family was something I could want.

And not something to be afraid of, that you walk away from, to love.

And that little house would be the home that we never got.

Finally peace, finally free, you and me and a dog.

Peace from my body: "Don't eat this! Don't eat that!"

"You're terrible! You're horrible! You're ugly! You're fat!"

Gone would be the cruel words that I say that sound silly!

A mind of my own that doesn't want to kill me!

Yeah. That's all I ever wanted. Something that's mine.

I want to be happy. I want to want time.

Maybe wishful thinking is all that I have.

Or is all I ever wanted far too much to even ask?

I'm horrified. I'm scared. This is not a drill.

@wethedreamers To me there is no higher calling than to make people laugh.

@bernardtwindwil I really want to thank you for deeming this a Declaration of Independence on what really felt like to me as a very needy poem on my part; you made me feel so much better and less insecure about it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also: "...for whatever millennials do in a group." That really made me chuckle. I adore you.

@nerdletech @michaelschulze I was hoping to reach a universal sense of the same wants and needs that had been echoed through many, if not all, of the hopes and dreams I had heard over the years, as well as my own. Your confirmation warms my heart. Thank you both so much!

This was beautifully written with idealism and a sense of romance. To me, you don't sound like an introvert. You sound like a normal person who just wants to not be messed with. Therefore the wish for a beloved partner, a dog, and occasional friends over for whatever millennials do in a group. This, to me, sounds like a beautiful declaration of independence. Great story.

When you boil it down love above all else is the one thing most of us crave but very few of us ever get to fully realize . I really can feel these words resonate in my soul
