Questions Right or Wrong by @annawkwardd

I never asked for the world.

I know that I could have, but I never did. This is what I asked for

I want eyes to look at me like they see the beauty in me I’ve never seen in myself

just one pair of eyes.

I want a voice to proclaim, she is fascinating, in a way that reverberates until it whispers all around, lining the walls of my  fragile soul

just one voice.

I want a hand in my hand, making my heart beat in unison and my palm sweat softly

just one hand.

I want a heart that knows, she has a way of making everything unique and beautiful and present

just one heart.

Have I asked for the world? No. But it is still too much.

There is already a pair of eyes looking at me in a way that makes me see all of my flaws

just one pair of eyes.

There is a voice that whispers all across the lining of my soul, she is not enough and she never will be

just one voice.

There is a hand in my hand holding me captive, making me sweat furiously with fear

just one hand.

There is a heart that knows, she will break apart and destroy all things

just one heart.

These are my eyes, this is my voice, my hand, my heart.

There is not yet room for anything else.

I never asked for the world.

I know that I could have but I never did.

But I have also never asked for my world to change.
