Sweet Dreams

The perfect love

Does it even exist

Or is his vision

A figment of my imagination

I have dreamed of a man

Who will care and

Put me close to the top

Of his list of needs

But so far all I’ve been

Is an afterthought

On the end of his day

I still have to believe

Someone out there

Might really care

Someday

I Need Love

You have done it again

With unprecedented ease

You took an opportunity to share

And I heard my heart snap

You know I care so much

And would do anything for you

So when you said those words to me

It felt like you were standing

On the broken pieces of my heart

I am in a place

You know little about

But waving your love

In front of my face

Makes me ache with unrequited love

And hurt for the one

Who would ultimately pay

For what you wanted in a brief moment

To fulfill your own primal needs

Needs

Two lost souls needing love

She craved him

She needed him

He was unpredictable

He was mercurial

She tried hard

She did all he wanted

He was still demanding

He was still unhappy

She wanted to hold on

She tried so many things

He was set to leave

He said his goodbyes

She couldn’t live without him

she was forced to say goodbye

He is still unhappy

She is still alone

Two lost souls needing love

Enough

Is what we are given

All that we need

Or is there a fire inside

That can never be quenched

Do we always want more

Or things we just can’t reach

Will we ever be satisfied

Or is there always a desire

That drives us to want

What is beyond our means

In Need

Photo by Thiago Matos on Pexels.com

A tortured soul

Restless and weak

In need of someone

To remove my demons

A broken heart

Faint and slowing

In need of someone

To make it beat

A life of solitude

Afraid and lonely

In need of someone

To just hold my hand

A tortured soul

A broken heart

A life of solitude

All in need of

You
