I need to feel wanted...
I feel pathetic
I drown in the sound
Of your heartbeat
No desire to forget it.

I feel lonely
Staring into your eyes
My one and only goal
Is to have you love me.

I feel empty
As I search your eyes
Discerning truth from lies
Never wanting you to leave me.

I feel desperate
Dying to be once more in your arms
Striving to be safe from all harm
Can you feel it?

I feel deprived
Pulled into the rhythm
Of each and every breath
As my longing drives from deep inside a lonely sigh...
