    Wanting. It's everything.

    Sometimes I wake up with it crawling on my skin, its pangs in my heart. I just want to be loved. I want to feel wanted. I want someone who touches me and not just my body; someone who hears me, not just my words. Let me know a love that draws me in without tearing me apart.

    I think everyone wants to be loved.

    It's hard though, when you grow up different. You grow up feeling unloved and worthless and you just want one person to show you your worth. To be there no matter what, to show you love....someone who'll never leave.
