Fire of Need

Our friendship was forged
Over the fires of need
Without the heat of need
We would always
Have remained alone

Your words
Your attention
Your caring
Your love
Show me
My worth
That you would gladly
Grab my hand
And fight the world
Alone with me
Means everything to me

My sympathy
Calms you
My laughter
Brightens your day
That I would do anything
For you
Am willing
To ride out storms
As well as sunny days
Soothes you

We needed each other
Because of our language
How we convey
everything
Even the brightest
Couldn't decipher it
Flawlessly

It took each other
To crack our shells
To tear down walls
To see our souls

Each of us
Can see the other's soul
Perfectly
We are connected
On a level so deep
That no one else
Will ever discover it

Forevermore
We'll fight together
The sole inhabitants
Of our own world
Against everything
The judgers
The stereotypers
Because our fire
Burns bright with need
