    Someone tell me you love me.
    Tell me you love me
    without reserve.
    Tell me something good
    something I can hang onto.
    Tell me you’ll hang onto me
    even when I prove imperfect.
    Tell me that the damage
    isn’t too great.
    Tell me that I have the right
    to ask this
    to ask without begging
    to live without forgiveness.
    Give me a chance
    to breathe.
    Grant me rest.
    But these things
    are not yours to give,
    they are mine to find.
    Or to stumble across.
    Just tell me that you love me
    so I have something
    to possess my mind
    as I limp along.

    I so understand the feeling behind this one... just give me a reason for being. I"m still looking for one. Every so often I think I"ve found it, but it doesn't seem to last or withstand a close look.

    I agree with leastofthese. I can definitely relate to the way you feel as evidenced in this writing, Some validation or affirmation of the fact we do exist aned have the right to. Not only that, but to know of our importance to at least one other person on this earth.
