Dark and lonely,

Craving the closeness of another human being,

Seeking connection, a tethering of souls,

Not just an illusion or some desperate delusion of the mind,

But to truly be the center of someone’s universe…

Selfish though it may be, the need to feel important cannot be denied.

To be important and to reciprocate that importance;

To share that gift with another soul

To be the brightest star in each other’s universe…

To feel love at its deepest, most primitive and ancient level

And to no longer be alone…

  1. Wow I felt that so much. So beautiful! I also long for that love šŸ’– It’s amazing how we all long for someone. Love is just the best thing in the world and it can be in any form like family, friends or other loved ones. Beautiful poem!

    1. Thank you so much! I wrote something a while back that eventually morphed into this poem. I decided to share it because I figured there were others out there who could relate. šŸ’™
