Comments about Austin Alfano
Wanting is a common human feature
We cannot help wanting.
Wanting is shared among various creatures.
Still we can be disappointed and be taunted.
As human beings we want many things.
We want more than we deserve.
We want more than kings.
We wish food to be served.
As for I, it is much less.
All I want is to be loved,
but lately life has been such a mess.
Lately I've been getting shoved.
I do not want much,
but all that I do want is almost forbidden.
If I could have but the slightest touch
all those feeling will be hidden.
You have marked me for life
It brings pain to merely recite
The story unbearable, always living.
Never leaving, I see your face
These are just the start of the marks
