I NEED YOU

By Enola Jones



You donít realize how much I need you
Love you all the time and never leave you

~~~~~~~

So thatís it. Four years of my life and thatís it. Heís thrown me over for another brass ring.

I should have known this was coming. I should have felt it. Everyone else has left me, what made me think he was any different?

His words of love Ė oh, donít start that, brotherly love Ė turned out to be lies. He said heíd never leave me.

Iíve never left him.

Why did he do this?

~~~~~~~

Please come on back to me
Iím lonely as can be
I need you

~~~~~~~

The senses are out of control Ė all over the place. Iím always on edge Ė feels like thereís danger all around. I donít know why. Iím tormented by jaguars and leopards and wolvesÖ.

I need to call him and---

No. I canít call him. Iím nothing to him anymore.

~~~~~~~

Said you had a thing or two to tell me
How was I to know you would upset me?

~~~~~~~

He asked me to come to see him at the university today. I canít do it. I know what heís going to tell me.

Heís going to tell me goodbye. I canít stand to hear it.

~~~~~~~

I didnít realize
As I looked in your eyes
You told me

~~~~~~~

His eyes showed nothing but excitement this morning. I know what that means.

Heís happy to be moving on.

How the hell could I have been so blind? How could I have thought that he cared for me for anything but my senses?

How could I have thought he could be my friend or my brother?

~~~~~~~

Oh yes you told me
You donít want my loviní anymore

~~~~~~~

So this is it. The split.

Heís found another Sentinel. Itís plain as the nose on his face. And he wants to be with him, not me.

Fine.

~~~~~~~

Thatís when it hurt me
And feeling like this
I just canít go on anymore

~~~~~~~

I hear the crash of something as I throw his belongings in the boxes. Good. It sounds like my heart.

Listen at me! Stupid, sentimentalÖ. Itís just another in a long line of betrayals.

Why did I think heíd be any different?

~~~~~~~

Please remember how I feel about you
I could never really live without you

~~~~~~~

And to think, I was starting to care for the bastard. Starting to think of him as a little brother.

So my senses go out of control. So what? Iíll just turn them off. Iíve done it before.

~~~~~~~

So come on back and see
Just what you mean to me
I need you

~~~~~~~

Everything in me is telling me to call him. To tell him this has to be faced Ė that he canít just shut me out.

But thatís just what heís done.

Thrown me over for this mystery other Sentinel.

I need him, dammit! Heís my Guide, not this oneís! MINE!

Too bad he didnít see it that way.

~~~~~~~

I need you

~~~~~~~

There. Thatís the last box.

He wants out so badÖ. He can go.

I donít care anymore.

~~~~~~~

I need you

~~~~~~~

I just donít care.

~~~~~~~

I need you.

The End
