He Just Needed…

This night,
Like all the others,
He yearned for sanctuary…

Just an acceptance,
And recognition,
Of safety,
And surety,

For his heart.

To him,
Life didn’t need
To be perfect,
Or blissful,

Or different.

He just needed
Someone to hold,

He just needed,
To count on another,
When life upended his expectations,

He just needed someone
To fill the emptiness,
And satiate,
The longing,

He just needed

Someone to
