He wants to be saved
From what, he does not know.
He wants to be filled and to be made whole.
He tires from being a wanderer.
Searching for peace he cannot hold.
But her eyes, smile and touch calm him.
He feels differently around her.
Intoxicated by her presence
Leaving nicotine and anti-depressants powerless.
He sees how he is drawn to her and he loves it.
She calms his demons and dresses him in laughter and joy.
But he fears to take it any further.
For emotionally she builds up his humanity
And he fears she will attain the power to break him.
