Necessity - Poem by Silver Portia

Why do I need you so much
Why can’t I close my eyes with out seeing you
Why do you escape me so often
You send me violent messages which leave my mind in disarray
Yet I still ache for your caress
Why do our chance meetings end in disaster
Come wrap me in your crippling embrace
So we can fix this dangerous affair
Sleep, you are a necessity
