You need my poetry as much as I do
When lovers are hand in hand with empty eyes
It’s me you’re yearning for
It’s me you’re looking to ignite
You need my words as much as I do
When kings are knighting knights with empty eyes
It’s me you’re eager for
It’s me you’re looking to satisfy your appetite
You need my thoughts as much as I do
When enlightened ones are transformed with empty eyes
It’s me you’re desolate for
It’s me you’re looking to never change the night
You need my poetry as much as I do
