I need a distraction.
Could you be so, just for today?
This isn’t what you think it is
Gaze into my orbs
There is no lust, not even love
Just the desperate need for comfort.
Hold me for a little while
Envelope me in your warm embrace
Allow my senses to be filled with you;
The throbbing in my skull to subside
The tears to cascade down onto you
The strangled sobs to escape my lips.
I’d be lying if I said
I needed your soul, though it is beautiful.
Ethereal, despite your cynical nature
Yet it is not your good looks I crave either.
Although you are quite the pretty picture
Nay, just hold me and stroke my hair
Till my anguish subsides
From this state of despair.
That alone will do.
