We run around in circles
Trying to find the truth.
What can you do to get her to love you
And how long will it take to convince her?
All of this and more
Lies resting against my banging indifference.
A very heady request lies before me
You’ve put upon the table like a vice
I can feel the strangulation begin
Before you even tell me of your problem.
Not sure of why you carry this weight within you
Or why you enjoy lying as a means of conquest
But tonight I cannot assist you.
I wave my hand across your
Necklace to feel its power.
You asked me if I could have anything
What would it be?
I looked through you
“For you to be real.”
Just then a shell fell on the floor
And we both wondered
Where the other half was.
