Needy for Love (Poem)
Stacey was a kind hearted soul,
Wanting to make her mark in the world.
Happy and seemingly carefree,
Perky and everyone adored her.
Though she was upbeat at first,
She craved attention
So much that it became her only obsession.
Her dad was a drunk,
Would get home from work,
Drink all night long.
Though she loved her dad,
As he was fighting his demons inside,
She knew there was much more to his disguise.
The more she craved his attention,
She felt empty inside.
She had this obsession,
For a man to love her
And guide her path.
She became needy for love,
Outside love became her only obsession
She could not stop this obsession,
Until one day, she looked in the mirror
With a dismayed expression on her face,
And told herself,
Love is from within,
And knew, her life was forever changed.
