when you latch on to them
and they latch onto you
with intent on becoming one
rearranging desire, pain and hope
latching comes with the burden of intent
layers and layers and layers
forced to be reckoned with
uncertainty starts to creep in
maybe you are actually alone
maybe there won’t be reciprocation
maybe they just can’t
maybe they are scared
god know I’m scared
god knows I can’t
getting that close means giving up certain things
that maybe the things you thought you needed
isn’t a need at all
after all, what really is a need?
isn’t it just longing?
isn’t it just selfish?
aren’t needs just justified selfishness?
