Wants & needs – 2


I want you so bad that I don’t want you.
Do you understand what I mean?
Stuck forever between an oasis and a lush green land, I don’t know which one I want more, or which one I am imagining.
Take my hand, then leave me alone.
Don’t tug, don’t push.
Breathe in and breathe out.
We’ll take one step as it comes.
Hush. Don’t make promises.
I’m beginning to fall in love with our silences.
With the way you say a thousand things, with the way your breath smells, always minty… with the way your lips taste… sweet and salty all at once.
How does that happen?
I tell myself not to give in… while every second I’m doing just that.
Hush. Don’t say a word.
Let’s just be.
