All I Wanted

All I wanted,
was a friend.
my past is haunted,
I see the end.
Too many lost,
so little found.
I paid the cost,
but no one's around.
I try to fit in,
but I really don't.
I'm crying within,
outside I won't.
Sometimes I say,
that I am no good.
I hate feeling this way,
I'd change if I could.
All I wanted,
was a friend.
but my memories are haunted,
they were all pretend.

    Tis a sad repreve when all that is wanted yet lost, does one stand hollowed out. I think ice-cream is a great cure for such moments. I alsoread "Silent, loud, eternal" and fell in love with it. Keep up the good poetry Carmen.
