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

cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
