It was nice to be wanted,

Even if it was just for one night.

It was nice to be held,

It was nice to feel connected.


It was good to feel special,

It was good to feel important,

It was good to feel needed,

To let go of the world around us.


These feelings were all new.

I didn't know if I could just lay with somebody,

I didn't know what the fuss was about.

I didn't know what it would feel like,

What it would feel like to be desired.


I didn't know what it was like,

To be admired,

To be together,

To be chosen.


For once in my life,

I was desired for me.

It was nice to be wanted,

Even if it was just for one night.


Was his arm getting tired?

Was he too warm or too cold?

Was I breathing too fast,

Or possibly too slow?


He scratched my back with his callused hands.

I laid my head on his chest.

I could hear his heart beating,

Feel his breathing.


It was nice to be held.

It was nice to feel connected.

Even if it was just for one night,

It was nice to be wanted.
