Deepest Needs

The mistake is made my most
believing affection has encroached
upon the heart that may mistake
emotion trailing in its wake

the flush is seen prompted by
sources from the outside
those comely frames belying faith
that affection requires another face

beware confusion in these lies
the truth is seen if thoughts comply
to understanding the deepest needs
are for the self to feel esteemed

to be loved reigns in the brain
this desire then masquerades
as an impression that other folk
are adoration’s truest source.
