    I need to write
    Because I cannot speak
    To the person I want to speak to
    I need to write
    Because the questions
    Have no one to answer them
    I need to write
    So that my sanity is kept safe
    I need
    I need
    I need
    T be with you
    To inhale the maleness that is you
    To wrap my arms around your back
    And hold on for dear life
    I can still smell you
    I breathe every ounce of you
    In my car
    In my bed
    In my clothes
    In my heart
    I need to write
    So that I don’t lose my sense
    Of self
    I need to write
    So that I don’t call you
    Every 15 minutes
    “Baby was it good for you ?”
    I need to write
    Because I cannot speak
    I need to write
    Because I cannot breathe
    I need to write
    Because I cannot love
    I need to write
    Because I am afraid
    I need
    To
    Write
    You ………..

    yes! yes! yes!

    quite refreshing isn't it

    to know you are normal
    just like anybody else

    and that you're not crazy :lol:

    with each and every passing
    moment when thinking of
    your crush

    nice work!

    :toast:

    We need to write, because sometimes we really want to scream. This is a great piece, many can relate to I am sure. I enjoyed this one a lot. Thank you for sharing.

    Amazing

    I felt so much emotion from that one. You so eloquently depicted that undescribable feeling that everybody gets when dealing with matters of the heart. Good Job!!
