Do you know what it is like to thirst?
Not want or desire, everybody wants. . .
A thirst comes from inside,
Telling you that it is necessary
For your very survival.
A thirst tears at your sanity.
A thirst tears at your soul,
The very fabric of your being.
Only the strongest of men
Can survive a true thirst
Without finding a way to quench it.

Do you know what it is like to be Lonely?
Not the loneliness of one,
It is easy to be lonely when you are one.
True loneliness is the loneliness of many,
The loneliness that strikes you in a crowd.
True loneliness that invades your sleep.
True loneliness that catches you at a party
To tell you that you do not belong.
True loneliness is an ache in your soul.
True loneliness is NOT a desire. . .
True loneliness is . . . a thirst.
