Give me your
Approval.
I need
Validation.
I need a hug
The way
Daddy needs a drink.

I take in all
The sounds
Sights
Feelings
Tastes
Smells
And overdose like the sick boy
That forgot how to smile.
Maybe he was never shown how.

The cancer spreads to my throat
And chokes my words.
I spit up venom
And poison all my relationships.
Now I am alone.

Call my bluff
But don't tell me I'm pretty
Because I won't believe you.
I don't take compliments from strangers.
