Enough to keep me around
Not enough to live on
Even once since meeting you
Has love been more than a spoken word
Needing more than pain and emptiness
Wanting sensual and seductive
Warm, soft and caring
An emotional exoskeleton surrounds you
I hope you can feel things
Have you cut yourself off from them
Possibly not even capable of comprehending
Reasons for begging you constantly to listen
You ask me to share my feelings
Yet yours are nowhere to be found
Only getting a response when I hurt you
Wanting to show you what good feeling is
Not just physical but mental
Never seeing in you anywhere
What my main point of wanting someone around is
Not wanting to let you go
In the hopes you will see what I've been asking
Since we started sharing ourselves
Starving and desperate for true love
Staring longingly at pictures in my mind
Of how things could be
How deeply I could love you
Disappointed at almost every encounter
Still hoping the next will have some shred of you
Realizing what I crave to be shared
If it was easy to explain
Maybe the idea would be known already
But the prism of human emotion runs deep
Thousands of nuances to be found
Millions still lie in undercurrents
Slowly I am going down with my ship
And will be lost in my own shell
Turning into another someone I won't want to be
Surviving until one comes along
Who will instinctively have the needs I do
