"To each his own" "Love is being stupid together"

I want to feel safe
I want to feel like there’s hope for tomorrow
I want to be loved
I want to feel someone else’s warmth
I want to feel protected, admired, and cared for
I want a lot
Still I don’t think I want too much
I don’t think happiness is much to ask for,
But then, why is it so much to lose?

The author's comments:
Okay this is killing my creative freedom right here but the poem was originaly called "Want" which apparently is unaceptable because its not at least five characters. Well poetry and writing in general is, in my opinion, about breaking rules and being yourself. If i want to call a poem simply "Want" I should be able to! Only for the purpose of wanting this comment to be read do I swallow my pride and re-name my poem "I want"
