If I Need Something?

A hug, if you will.

Even better still
If you hold me
Long enough
For me to cry,
And even longer
For the tears
To run again dry.

For so long
I've held it all
So close
And closed inside
As if a common
Is an embarrassment
Best to hide

Fill if you can
The emptiness
I feel in my soul
That part of me
Where company lost
Leaves nothing
But a big hole.

Because sometimes,
No matter how much
You wish or curse

The paths we walk
We walk on our own
And the fears we carry
We face alone.
