Wanting to be needed…like a forbidden rush of drugs to a lifelong addict.

It’s never enough, but the endless cycle carries the confessions of a devoted fanatic.

I wanted you to want me, but my heart needed to be free.

I became everything you wanted & killed the voice inside of me.

There’s a difference between want & need…a dangerous parallel divided in two.

Pull away to get a little closer but even an obsession won’t give you the entire view of what I’ve been through.

It’s easy to lust after what you never had…the chase is just another phase of an infinite chess game.

Having what you want but no longer need, leaves emptiness in the heart & the soul enslaves itself to the demands of an unquenchable flame.
