How long must I wait

My body is aching, grab me, and press me close.
Screams echo battering inside my skull.
Raging inside why do you not come?
Invisible tears fill my eyes, hidden and unseen.
This is my life obscured from public view.
Hold me hurt me, my need is great,
Can you not hear, am I all alone?
Come to my call fill me, please!
I languish here, alone among them.
They are blind, cruel do not see this desire.
The lust the crawls through me, hot and wet,
Ready to be impaled, how long must I wait?
I am falling in, can hardly breath.
I ask again, how long must I wait?
