Needs, Wants, Desires.

by lilhoppinpenguin

He needs space.
Medical school requires his undivided attention.
Study groups and self-study sessions count down to his next exam.
There is no room for failure.
There is no room for me.

He needs company.
Eating and studying alone distract his focus from medical school.
A few great friends keep him from jumping into a brink of insanity.
There is no room for more.
There is no room for me.

He needs mental stimulation.
Two minds are better than one.
A third makes things interesting.
There is no need for an empty brain.
There is no need for me.

He wants someone to be there for him.
To be a pillow that catches him when he falls.
To follow him with unwavering loyalty.
There is no need for a wanderer.
There is no need for me.

And here I am.
I want to be with him.
But with my desires and hopes…
Is there a need for me?

Yes.
But it doesn’t have to be by his side.
