to be an outsider

Outsiders aren’t afraid to stand out on their own.
I am…
I need you to be beside me or I won’t have the strength to survive…
I need you to be my lifeline…
To keep me from floating off into the abyss of space.
I am no spaceman I was meant to stay with you…
I can’t live with out…
You are what I need you are my oxygen, my blood, my everything…
space may be the final frontier but it scares me.
The unknown is my greatest fear.
It is what I cannot stand…
you are my basis, my rock, my origin.
Everything else may be uncertain but I do know for definite certainty that with out you…
I am nothing, matter floating out into nothing…
forgotten by all, until I come crashing back, burning up in the atmosphere; gone forever irretrievable.
We may step out into the unknown but I can handle that as long as you, my lifeline, is there to support and to keep me alive.
Today may be done, tomorrow may never happen.
But at least I’ve had yOu with me.
Day by Day, I grow more reliant on you.
Like the drug of an addict.
Every hit makes it harder to stay away.
Soon I’ll have nothing, nothing but you.
I’m ok with that though.
You are everything I need.
My family, my friend, my warmth, my shelter.
A hug from you will sustain me for food; a kiss from your lips will keep my thirst quenched…
I need nothing of this world but you.
I care nothing for the life I am living, it is an interrupting ad break from my real life which is with you.
I don’t want to buy anything from this unnecessary second life.
It can die away.
I’m happy with that.
I’m hoping it will happen soon enough.
Some may say that that is rash, that it won’t last long just ride it out…
But it is a waste of time.
I don’t need it.
I have this other life, my real life.
I don’t need any more education; I don’t need a really good job later on.
I need to be with you that is it.
Nothing else.
Everything thing else is useless, a waste of time, of energy, I need nothing from anyone.
Just you.
