A young man dreams of having someone to love. The kid just doesn't want to be alone, alright? 

And They Shall be as One

Behold the shadow of my mind.
It dwells in obscure mist.
I keep it veiled in deepest caves.
It’s thoughts I shall not list.

For, it is mine, alone to know —
To fathom its strange way,
And govern paths that it must tread
Alone from day to day.

But, I am not the kind of soul
That craves to walk alone.
Yet, I have walked, until this date,
A course that I bemoan.

I have the need that Adam did
To know another soul;
To find for self a compliment
And take another role —

To mesh in mind and body with
The person that you are;
To join into a lasting bond
That none can break or bar.
