I Lost Something

I sit here quiet in my room.
I want to take a bite 
out of life and leave a mark.
But my teeth aren't Sharp
enough for my  appetite.

I want the wet mark left 
on my neck to remind
me someone noticed my 

I want to dance to the 
moonlight's favorite song. 

I want to sing to the 

I want to listen 
while the sun talks to me. 

I want to be brave when 
fear has no excuse.

I want to be your shelter 
when it starts to drizzle.

I want to love you when 
you think no one is there. 

I want to be your pillow 
when your head is heavy.

I want to be your moment 
when you feel my pain.
I want to be!!!!!!!

    Such raw emotion and desire. I love the line "someone noticed my footsteps" I think that is a wish of everyone.

    Thank you 4 your comment Sean, I have read a few of your pieces.. Some thoughts..' What has been is not ( you ) what is to be is (beyond you) clear your mind and let the poetry flow.' in this you will find that which you seek; the wholeness and the fullfilment.. Good work so far, Joe..'
