Used up and empty

Solitude and loneliness is my daily lot

But I hate it

Want to be wanted

Desire to be desired

Love to be loved

It’s lonely being a guy

Having to chase the girl

Do all the hard work

Give, but never receive

Initiate everything

Pay for everything

While she rides along sucking your blood

Are there girls out there who care?

Who can give of themselves without seeking something in return?

Who can love me and desire me

As much as I desire her?

Kiss me out of the blue for no other reason

Than that she loves me?

It’s been so long since

I felt someone really cared for me

I’ve almost forgotten how to be loved

How to accept kindness and tenderness

How to be okay with receiving love

Without feeling guilty or the need to reciprocate
