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
