+ Fav Poet



As my youth approaches me so very quickly
I discover the desires of my flesh 
It cries out for more and more!
The hunger for touch has darkened my being
The need for attention obtains me once more
My close ones impart only what they can
But I am never fullfilled
Just to grasp the love I seek
I turn to anyone, who will give me what I yearn for
Never caring of the consequences for my need of fullfillment
Never caring of who I hurt to get what I require
The hunger envelopes me and overtakes my judgement
So I seek the one who can cover my soul completely 
The being that can stop my search for another
The one who can kill my flesh and sweep away the cries
Until the hunger is no more
