I Need You

Never once in all these years have I ever had a feeling of wanting you or desiring you. It was always a need; a necessity.

I need you in the same way I need food, water or oxygen. I need you like the Earth needs the Sun, or like the Stars need the Universe to reside.

I am like a star out there somewhere and you are my Universe. I never wish to be apart from you.

And when it happens, I break, I burst, I form dust and spread across space-time, never to be seen again. Or at best, I become something so terrible that I suck in everything good that comes near me and tries to help.

Without you holding me, I become self-destructive. And that is what worries me, irritates me, frustrates me and then, with you not being there and all these emotions racing through me, I turn into a giant ball of fire and explode.

You are the force that holds me together. Had it not been for you, I would have drifted into a pocket dimension somewhere deep into the unexplored space. No one would have known that I even existed.

I don’t want you to hold me, I don’t want you to protect me, I don’t want you to do anything for me!

But yes, I do need you to do everything for me. Because if you won’t, I will just cease to exist.

  1. Beautifully expressed…. yes! These are such true emotions that all humans, if they are lucky enough, or feeling enough, feel at some time. Wow! I’m impressed.

  2. This is so beautifully written. I can totally relate. And I guess… with what I’m dealing with now, it’s just sad on so many levels.

  3. Truly, He is life and apart from Him there is only existence…existence without meaning or hope. I want to thank you, for choosing to follow my blog. I do hope you find encouragement and hope through the posts.


  4. Love is the expression of mutual necessity. When the love is real and enduring there is no choice, even if we try to fool ourselves into thinking so. We need the other, and they need us, as the plant needs the sun. Beautifully written expression of this strong underlying necessity.
