Love Is My Need - Poem by Salvie Rosales

I wandered throughout the clouds;
Chased sparkly stars under shrouds.
I had even walked out of boundaries;
Slipped thru depth in thick flurries.

Road I crossed, so narrow and rough;
My heart within; like stone so tough.
I have no wit, no words, nor tears;
Numbed too much; for hopes or fears.

I looked right, look left and dwell alone;
Lift mine eyes, but dimmed in cyclone.
My earth revives all the skies above it;
Love is my need, can’t live without it.

My heart cries out, oh! it’s about to burst;
Waiting for one kiss to quench my thirst.
Long for tender touch to hold me again;
Love is my need; and long to love again.
