WANTING

Author: 
Fernando Ceballos Lachica

Poem:
 
WANTING


I sit alone here in my lonely room...
Confused and alone...
No one to hold...
No one to feel the warmth of my soul...
No one to feel the closeness of heart...
Sorrow...pain...hurt...selfishness...
But feels frigid and emotional...
I can love myself and do...
But this can't fill everything I want...
And need...

Others say, that you need to love yourself so as...not "seem" needy...

"Seem"...

Ego...undesired quality...

This I feel for wanting what I need...
And don't need...
They think to hide it keeps them strong...
Untouchable...

Foolish...

We all need something...
We all have burning desires and soulful wants...

Needy...
Too needy...

I am true to my heart and won't falter from others whom stopped needing...

I need at this moment to be loved...
To be held with passion and understanding...
Not to hold I am wrong...to be human...

I want...I need...

    Fernando, Yes, I've been called to needy from time to time. I think that my need comes from wanting oneness of soul with the one that I love. Perhaps, at times, that requires too much giving from the other. Perhaps, not- Being true to oneself, needy or not... I am. Your poetry makes us look inside ourselves. Thank you. Good writing. Love, Dane
