Thinking, writing, thinking about writing…

Abundance

The more you give,

the more we want from you.

The less we get,

the less we need.

The greater the belief,

the faster the drop.

We gurgle content when you are out of sight

we clamour with impatience when you hover by

We ask and ask, for ears that hear us,

and hearts that answer with memories of guilt.

Relieved of care, we waste not, want not.

Away from pity, we do not fear.

We live, survive, grow and wonder

at your anger, confusion and delusions of grandeur.

 

You ask and ask

in bawling bands clinging too tightly,

You want and want, unruly imp,

so winsome, so toothsome.

You glance, we melt

lest we forget

what got us here in the first place.
