Sometimes there's never enough

I was 14
it was the summer
and all of a sudden
there was never enough

Even away at camp
no matter how many times I left the cabin
there was never enough

It consumed me
this need
this desire
I never stopped to think, to question
I just did what my body demanded

And now, at 33
I've learned to fake it
It's not natural, what goes inside
but it makes me happy, makes me better
but I worry that there will never be enough

Melissa Lion asked me ever so nicely if I could write a blog post with the subject: never enough. And because, sometimes, I follow directions. I did.
