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…

Someone to

Love.

    1. Thanks Manessah! It is the time of day that really amplifies things for me. Strange I guess. And BTW, based on one of your other award posts…I’m still working on your first name… ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. You’re very welcome, Bill! That’s the same for me, as well. The night is when I do my deepest thinking and just start reflecting on everything in life. You’re not alone on that one. ๐Ÿ˜Š

        Haha! Good luck figuring out my real name (though it’s pretty common!) Lol ๐Ÿ˜„
