Did You Ever Really Want Me? – February 2011

Did You Ever Want Me?

did you ever want –
my touch, stroke or stare?
i feel like –
i was a diversion –
for the roadworks you created
as if the decisions,
were somehow belated

did you look at me –
when you held me tight
did you set anything free –
or think, i am not very bright

do you love him
you open, ‘something’
and the question still begs
there is a lifetime,
for some us, and it lies ahead

you seem intent –
on taking second best
i was just the sweeper
cleaning up a mess
did you ever want –
my touch, stroke or stare?
what are you like –
did you ever want me there?
