0042 Need [04 May 1997]

That’s how I feel.
Lost within,
That’s how I am.

My life has no direction,
No real wants,
No real needs,
Except one.

The need felt long ago,
The need for strong arms,
That surround and comfort,
That caress and pleasure.

The need to have
Eyes that meet mine
Filled with love,
Filled with desire and direction.

The need for
A soul that’s strong.
To support me when I need it,
To lead me when I need to be led.

The need to hear,
A voice of a man,
Who looks past
All of my faults and flaws.

The need for someone,
To care for me,
Make love to me,
And hold me when it’s dark.

The need I’ve felt
For so very long,
That I fear
It will never be satisfied.

The need,
That I’ll die wanting.
The need,
I’ll die without having.

When my need
Is fulfilled,
Then my life can go on,
Then I will have direction.
