I never had it.
What does it feel like?
Requited and mutual
A yes to that nervous question

I've never had it
That embrace of affection
With that one you enjoy
You yearn for and endear to

I must keep pressing on
Maintaining a countenance
Of understanding
Of "no I'm fine"

But inside I cry
Cry not for answer
Not for the failure
for the opportunity

Its what I've never had
And desire burns
If only... if only
Loneliness was hard
