Something From My Book of Poetry – “I Need”


I need

I need love
Because it is the purest link between my living and my existing
But I need more than love

I need respect and appreciation
Because it nourishes my humanity
But I need more than respect and appreciation

I need passion
Because it is best way to know I still matter
But I need more than passion

I need insightful intellect
Because mental agility is supremely erotic
But I need more than insightful intellect

I need beauty
Because it comforts my eyes
But I need more than beauty

I need scorching, sizzling sex
Because that connection transcends my flesh and lifts me near the sublime
But I need more than scorching, sizzling sex

I need pure and simple understanding
Because any other kind of understanding would be pity
But I need more than pure and simple understanding

I need all of the above
Because anything less would be incomplete
But I need more than all of the above

I need someone who needs all these things too
Because it is easier to give what I need
But I need more than just someone who needs all these things too

I need that particular someone who would touch me in a way that seduces my resignation and softens my cynicism. I need that uncommon someone who would soothe the soul of my fractured spirit. I need someone I am easy with.

Someone who is more than the sum of all I need.

  2. As someone who used to write bad poetry, I can tell good poetry when I read it

    • Thanks. I really do not write poetry anymore. But I just wrote a book which is a compilation of what I had written long ago.
