All I wanted

all I ever wanted was for you to be there,

to hold me, to love me through it all.

All I wanted was to know you, inside and out.

to know your fears, and your secrets,

to understand you,

what makes you laugh,

and cry,

what keeps you awake at night when you’re lost in your own mind.

I wanted you to see me for what I really am.

I wanted your trust,

I wanted to be your happiness, your anger, your sadness and your joy.

All I wanted was love,

a love without walls,

but how did we get it so wrong,

when we had so many chances to get it right?
