All Of Me - Poem by Bernard Snyder

I poured my heart out for you
and you knew it
you had me wrapped around your fingers
and you blew it,
It didn't matter how many women confronted me
It was always you I wanted standing in front of me,
but you just wanted the thrill
without commitment,
not much else mattered
as long as you were gettin' it,
but I want you to listen for a moment
and keep still,
I'm no longer interested in being
your cheap thrill,
I want something more promising
I can build on
have something to show for
once the thrill's gone,
maybe we'll meet again
in my next life
hopefully you'd want more
than just a sex life,
I can't say I won't miss you
but I gotta move on
you shouldn't have a problem finding someone
to get your groove on,
as for me
I'm now looking for longevity
not just someone to go to bed with me
and when I find her
she'll be treated royally
because I will be giving her all of me....
thoroughly.
