Satisfy me

Satisfy me

A Poem by Inkcognito

should you still need me, should you still want me...


Do you not understand

the raw emotions of my being

do you not realize that

my heart needs to feed

off your undiluted words


Do you not see me

or register my hunger

hoping, longing, yearning

for a mere morsel of secondhand

words to fall from your mouth


Do you not know

that I want to make connection

only to realize that our

connection is not what you need

and your attention is diverted


I feel you drifting away

like a fallen leaf in a river

as I reach to pick you out

you change direction

float swiftly towards another


I am no rag doll

to be dragged about

dressed up for convenience

I have a heart, warm blood

a mind filled with thoughts


I am still here

I am still waiting

should you still need me

should you still want me

come for me, satisfy me

Coupled with the song, this piece really sets a mood of longing, of need... I am sure, that without a doubt, he hears you.. sometimes those words go undelivered, unable to reach you amid the chaos of life.. Haunting, and beautiful..

Chillingly beautiful and yet sadly
so surreal....

I can relate to this poem in some ways and experiences. It is a shame when someone has to ask these questions and feel they must wait to find out if the person will decide to re-engage into the relationship. This one is sad but it has that inner strength shinning through.

The words were strong. When we open a door to love. We need to re-affirm the need and desire daily. A lonely heart will wander.
"I am still here
I am still waiting"
I like the emotion and desire in your words. A outstanding poem.

enticing....alluring and seductive...

Posted 9 Years Ago sexy and unsexy at the same time, the passion resonates and the point pins you to the wall and the question begs an immediate answer.....I'm witing...I'm Nicely done.

Very nice. Strong emotions and some beautiful lines

'as I reach to pick you out
you change direction
float swiftly towards another'

Oh i do i do i do, what lovely words you use, floating like a leaf, in the rivers of silent time, you reach out, only to see him caught up in someone else's fishing line. oops where did that line come from.
