I need you because I want you;
the converse could be stressful.
I want you because I want to love you;
I want to love you because—just because.
Je ne sais quoi.
In absolute terms, God does not appear to need man;
yet he lives and acts as though he does—just because.
The ones I have loved; I still do.
I remember your shine.
The one I love; it’s only you.
I’ve filled my heart with your light.
Who you want to be
by what you think you ought to have
How you want to be
by who you think you ought to be
Who will you be
By what you want others to think or not
How will you be
By what you feel you see you think
By what you feel you think you see
From what you see you sense you see
Trust: a dangerous game
That we play every day
To become less insane
Lest we cease to seem sane
Questioning and asking questions
This child demands answers
Not as the answers to an exam
But she does examine
To have the happiness of having
To enjoy the joy of being
Are you because you have
Have you because you are
Stretched: lenghtened to the point of feeling tense;
Extended: drawn to the point of longing for relief;
Looking at you with your close friends the other day
It wasn’t envy that said that that is where I wanted to be
I would want better with you than to be at an edge
