What I want is what I need

If I was able,
I would give you all of my love as a kiss;
as it fades from my fingertips
when I reach out to touch the skin
on your cheeks
before your lips.
I would not think twice,
I would not think once,
I just would.
Maybe this life is meaningless
but I want to give meaning to it,
to only justify being next to you;
so close in the warmth of a blush
when I realize I’m not hiding
a single thing.
I’ve lost track of time
since I felt like my heart last beat,
but today, when you said my name
when you said anything,
and I let my emotions
do the thinking,
I swear it did.
Deep within me,
I can feel a stirring quake
of life
and I wish I could give it all away
so you could come save me
like I’ve been waiting for;
so I can lose this lonely ache in my bones.
If I was able,
I would give you all of my love as a kiss;
as it flowed from my fingertips,
and soon, darling,
I might be just strong enough
to fall again.

What I want is what I need
