I Cannot Resist
Why should life be complicated, anyway?
They told me...
I think I'm in Love
Make me Free Again

soul mates

I want a lover next me.
I need to have someone
who will keep me warm
from the cold vacancies
that live within me.

I'm craving for a man
who will hold me in his arms.
There, I can be sheltered from
the loneliness that haunts me
in my dreams.

I want to feel his lips press against
my neck and his passion pour
into my veins.
Only then will I be immune from
being infected by pain.

I need to feel the sensation
of being loved again.
My mind keeps spinning every day.
Every hour. Every minute.
All I ask for is to have a lover.
How can it be too much to ask for?
