– every so often –

Could not beg so boldly for just any loose affection, for a

morsel of attention, but I’m on my way there.

In New England coldly with my jacket for protection, might trek

in any direction for the warmth of one’s care…

~

’cause all the weight from waiting is weighing on me…

where is the strength for a heart so damn lonely?

~

Every so often, I crave such a warm hug, even

when it’s not love, solitude is too much.

Occasionally, I long for an embrace, even

in my disgrace, this ache can’t be erased.

Every so often, I yearn for peaceful nights…

with some kind of piece of you to make it just right.
