I am alone

and this I loathe

on the reckless path

of the straight and narrow

I’m flicking through my phone

wondering why I am here

playing in a bubble bath

water logged through the marrow

Where are you

teaching someone to do it right

We need to get a clue

not get in a fight

I need you to hold me

Tonight I wondered

what really makes me smile

mostly trivial things

a surprise phone call

a piece of candy someone gives me

a good story told by a complete stranger

these things tell me

I like to be thought of

I want to be wanted

I want you to hold me
