I need your love


Like an addict needs drugs 

And how violence fuels thugs 

When my lungs scream to breathe in fresh air 

When my broken heart's beat

Leaves my soul incomplete 

Til I pluck up the courage to share 

Like the stars need the sky

To reflect in your eye

It can make me all fuzzy inside 

It's a magical thing

If you're wearing my ring 

When we walk hand in hand side by side 

When we touch I explore 

It's like you cracked the code 

And can now pluck the strings of my heart 

I can't think for myself 

My emotions and health 

Seen to suffer when we have to part 

Like my blood needs a vein 

Or the flowers need rain 

Be my anchor when push comes to shove 

The sun's need is to shine 

And I guess you know mine 

My one need in this life is your love

            Some very lovely words in this writing 🙂 love the mention of the sun and rain .. the star needs the sky ( sometimes another can make us feel more ‘complete ‘ and we can feel wrong without them ..
