I Want To Know – Written Monday 9th July 2001 (Aged 26)

I Want To Know

i want to know
how it is,
we can feel this way
you are,
the most incredible person
and, no,
i was not looking for a nurse
one whose only job
was to resuscitate my ego
and bandage the hurt,
and, no,
i was not looking for a hero
one who could fly through the sky
just hold me close,
till this day dies
i was always… just looking…
looking for a human being
all seeing and all feeling
that kind of special person
someone, someone so human
and i do need to know,
how it is,
i found you
