I need to feel wanted

To not feel neglected 

Conscious attention

To not feel abandoned 

I need to feel supported and protected 

Loved and connected

I need to feel like my feelings matter

Like my life is important as I start a new chapter

I’m scared since I’ve not had my needs met before

I feel so dependent like I’ll always need more

I’m looking for people who feel the same way

Who will be happy to meet my needs 

And not run away

I’m told that this need for interdependence is right

The lack I’ve experienced still moves me to flight 

I’m vulnerable now as I share what is true

I’ve laid out my insecurities right here before you

I’m taking a chance by this emotional display

Hoping someone will show up and meet me halfway
