Longing

I long for someone to hold me,

To fill this empty space inside.

I long to be the best,

Hoping that work

Will take the place of need.

I long to put down these burdens

To sleep and never wake up.

I long to snuggle close and know

That everything will be all right.

I long for something, someone.

Each day I search for it.

On and on but never a trace

Have I found anywhere.
