What I need now won’t come from a boy. It will come from within.
It is 5am and I want nothing more but to be hidden inconspicuously in the crevices of your arms, to have my legs intertwining with yours, and our fingers locked together ever so delicately. It is 5am and the only thoughts that fill my mind, are those of you and how much I need you by my side.
If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.
I have lived
in my body
and still need
maps and lights
to find my way
to how I feel.
