Wanting

WANTING
(A Lover’s Lament: To Add, Subtract or Alter)

you give me your word
yet, I find you wanting in deed
as your BEST becomes BEAST
when ‘A’ hitch comes between us.

you give me your thoughts
yet, I find you wanting in brains
for your BETTER becomes BITTER
when ‘I’ brush your ‘E’go.

you give me your time
yet, I find you wanting in moments
when your HOUR diminishes
to become OUR bane.

you give me your attention
yet, I find you wanting in affection
for your HEART is no HEARTH
and your WILL is your ILL.

you give me your embrace
yet, I find you wanting in warmth
for your ARMS are but ALMS
that disguise your disdain.

but if ‘U’ leave my AUBURNED life
then, A BURNED out man I shall be!

– wanting
is between
giving and taking
.
