Wanting You





I know the difference between a want and a need.
I need very little.
I want a lot.
I practice wanting less.
I want you.
Now.
So intensely it feels like a need.
I just can't settle down until I have you.
So I need you to come and give me some of your calm.
Nothing else is working.
I don't want to practice wanting you less.
I like the feeling.
But come soon anyway.

Now THAT'S poetry.
I'm howling! I'm stomping my feet!
Owwoooooo oooo!
Baby, oh man, you slay me!
Slay us all.

Owwoooooo oooo! is right. I've been slain myself.
