If I wanted to be needed,
It isn't to be the object of desire;
It isn't hard to be lusted after.

But if I surrendered to lust
It isn't that I lived to be sinful;
It is because I was derailed.

If I needed to know someone 
Who needed to know me,
It does not make me a dreamer.

And for he who can make my heart 
Play rhythms I cannot pronounce,
I will forever long to be the one.

I welcome constructive critisism; I am not fragile so go for it -- tell me what you really think!
