Too Late?

by blossom666

Someone please tell me what it is to be loved

i’m tired of pretending to be really tough.

I need a hug.

Not a hug formed of pity,

or because I am pretty.

Not a hug to use time,

or because ‘you’ are mine.

I don’t want politeness

or niceness

or simply a grope.

I don’t want it fuelled

I don’t want It schooled.

I want to feel warm,

I want to feel safe,

but i’m starting to wonder if

i’ve left it too late.
