What you want….flees you,
What you want …. strolls away causally to the other end,
Muttering a song of its own…nonchalant..
There ain’t much you can give to “what you want”..
As there ain’t much you have..than “what you want”..
Wants never rise to the brink..they dig deep,
If they ever rose.. they dripped and then washed off the linen of life..
they would be just..just overflowing foam..and never be your want..
but what you want ..it..they..he..his..are waves that wash off the shore..
But play in and serve only the ocean..
The ocean..is in you..the soul..the wants dig deep..and they harrow your nights and days..
It’s chains clunk..and you are tied to yourself..
Yes..his eyes were never mine..but wants can only want..
Free me from him..from his eyes..from his words..
From his desires that are not in me but in elsewhere..when he is drunk on his bitter taste of life..
Elsewhere..his eyes find his wants..
Playing naked in an ocean beyond the limitless horizon of mine..
And I can only know their existence..but quench my thirst not..
in its murky sparkling yet enticing waters..
Fortune deceives me..not even as fortunate as the moon..
which touches it only with its non-luminosity..
What you want deceives you..breathes your breath..
quenches its thirst within itself..leaves you thirsty…
what you want..make it go away..wash it away..keep it afloat at the shores..
Lest it be the only poison you can drink..rest dry in comparison.
