Darkness & Longings

“I just want to be happy,” she said

her voice echoing

in the empty room

or maybe just in her head

“I just want to feel loved,” she cried

her tears salt warm

in the coldness of her bed

her aching heart sighed

“I just want to be held,” she pleaded

with an unhearing universe

wondering if she is cursed

her pleading goes unheeded

“I just want to be touched,” she moaned

her fingers tracing the lines

of her touch-starved skin

as she lay there alone

“I just want intimacy,” she prayed

asking the Gods for mercy

for strength to endure

another night until the day

“I just want connection,” she whispers,

“to feel the touch

of another soul

brushing against my own.”
