I May Want More Love Than I Can Give
I may want more love than I can give
I may be a porcupine, but porcupines need love
I may be a cactus, but a cactus needs nourishment
I may be a monster, but a monster needs a friend
I may be enraged, but rage is born of fear
I may be a pain, because I am in agony
I may be scary, because I am afraid
I may never be complete, because what is complete?
I may never be deserving, because what is deserving?
I may never be safe, because what is safe?
I may never succeed, but Iíll never stop trying
I may be a fool, but I am humble
I may be crazy, but itís a crazy world
And I may want more love than I can give.

I have felt like a monster. I am often frustrated that when I am the most in need of people, that is when I push people away.

Your poem reminds me of song "Unconditional" by the Bravery

I've spent my whole life surrounded
And I've spent my whole life alone
I wonder why I never wonder why
The easiest things are so hard

I just want, I just want love
I just want, I just want love
I just want something for nothing

I'm a beggar and I'm a chooser
I'm accused, I'm an accuser
But nothing's unconditional
