A little collection of poems where each one is about the emotions that don't want to be told, but in a way they need to because it's unhealthy to keep it all bottled up.
Eager to Be
You must all think that I'm a fool,
As I'm as sure that I'm a tool.
But I laugh and I joke to make your day seem brighter
'Cause when you frown and you cry it makes more a fighter
Than I thought I could ever be,
To win back your happiness from the depths of humanity
But I do all of this, to get all of the bliss,
The love that I need to feel sated.
Do I seem too eager to please ya?
Even though I'm not nicer
Than your smiles and your souls and the radiance that burns
All my skin and my bones as the dissolving world turns
You've left me like rags when I'm left so alone
Because ev-er-ybody needs someone like you.
As I stand before you and smile more than you do
You wonder why am I so happy? What did I do to
Make him smile like he does, to make him laugh like he does?
And if you leave, or when you leave
Don't forget to brush the leech of your sleeve
Because I've drained you of blood for far too long.
As when you laugh, and hug me the warmth reignites
I'm getting withdrawal symptoms throughout all the night
I don't need the kids, the marriage, the house or the wife
Because like ev-erybody here all I need, is someone like you
And when you all leave my side
I turn bitter, oh so bitter
I trust no-one who resides
In my hugs anymore
Because as selfish as I am, even if you think I'm a quitter
I still need you
Oh I still need you.
