Will I ever be enough?

I want to be wanted 

Someone to look at me 

And never want me to leave.

They want me even when 

They don’t need me. 


I crave to be touched

But not how you think

Touch my mind


Touch my heart 

Be my missing link.


I long to be needed

The way I needed him

I wonder how it would feel.

Need me all the time,

not just when you’re feeling grim.


I need to be loved,

Yes really I need it

Let me love someone 

Who truly loves me back

A reason to live, a complete fit.


Will I ever be enough?

I will want you

I will touch you

I will need you 

I will love you!




Will I ever be enough?

To be wanted

To be touched

To be needed 

To be loved?


Will I ever be enough?






  • dusk arising

    And if you were ever enough, what would be your next 'I want?'
