sometimes i never feel
as if i know
What is going on in my world?
those who favor and humor
themselves customize
their feelings aren’t real
   Until the time comes
   to wish anew
   and they wish anew
Upon the same feelings
is when we hope for the best
if possible they enjoy
   the tease of sexuality
   to calm their cravings
For life is too precious
to throw away
those things that make them
   happy
   But
what if they’ve lost
   their magic?
we should feel from within
instead of touching the outside
