    When I needed you
    You needed something, everything but me

    When I wanted to confront you
    You said intelligently you loved to be confronted
    But you weren't hearing me

    My every thought
    That wandered days on end
    Silently

    My thought
    That brought me to intelligently guess
    As some way to solve
    My ignoring the way
    We had nothing in common
    But I guess an ear, to listen to eachothers needs

    I needed you
    But again I needed something other than you
    Anything but you

    Because you were hurting me
    Just the way I was hurting you

    By not being there when I needed you
    Although I was daring you
    TO come back and taste me
    I said, " come , come, come"
    And I did come
    The waaaay you thought I should be

    That was yesterday, ...

    So why do I still need you?

    As it always seems to be that, Habit is second nature, which at times be a bad habit we need to drop.
    I feel you, been there...done that!
