Hunger

If only you knew him, you’d know. If only you saw him, you’d know.
If only I told him, he’d know.
If only I let him feel, I’d know.
Fast forward to erase time I can’t rewind
And this time round, love’s cruel grind
Is in you, if you ever tell me “No!”
So, do I tell you? How will you know?
Can you see it? Does it seek out, and show?
“Take it easy” you say “take it real slow”
But love’s cruel rush comes, now, gone tomorrow.
I hunger for you, now.
Need you, but don’t know how –
To take you, own you, submit, and be
Owned in turn, your possessor – only –
I’m scared, I fear, I cannot speak
Words, feel that I am now so weak
In your arms, tonight, so strong.
Tonight – this is where I belong.
