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

And whispered

“For you to be real.”

Just then a shell fell on the floor

And we both wondered

Where the other half was.
