Image for the poem Needy


I want to just be me
kind-hearted and mischievous
silly...a girl at heart
vulnerable in my want

I need people...

just call me needy
I float from person to person throughout the day
like a bee...flower to flower
lighting on your thoughts
not staying too long lest I tire you

see I burn with an intensity
it can be overwhelming if I stay too long
so I pull back and find another to talk to
person to person all day long

I don't like t.v. or games
people are my interest that and my art
I love to write it's my passion
if I still had space I would paint like I once did too
it helps fill my need

I desire to reach you...

caress your soul
and let you know how beautiful you are to me
people get used to this from me
and I think in part look forward to it

when I have my down days
I must pull back and regroup
I still ache for your presence
and feel like I'm letting you all down
when I'm not as I usually am
I burn so bright I burn out sometimes

I have to recharge...

I'm bipolar I don't think of it as an illness though
I think I'm differently gifted to feel and perceive things
sometimes it hurts to be so sensitive

I'm needy...

a child of want
your energy is beautiful to me
don't you know we are connected?
communal energy flows in, through, and around us

I hope to make a connection today
feed your soul some beauty
I think I will call myself---
