| Needy |
I am needy.
It’s a known fact
that I need attention, affection,
touch, your ears to bend towards me
as I talk. I need anything but criticism,
there is no victim card in my back pocket
but I don’t want to hear it so instead, tell me I
smell like sunflowers and coconut. Tell me,
I’m beautiful even in my jeans and hoodies.
Please, don’t point out the grey hairs sprouting
from the top of my head, do not comment on
the acne that just won’t go away…
There are so many things that I need
and if I can’t get them from you,
I’ll get them from myself.
