Yearning for you to be the difference
Between what I wanted
And what I thought I deserved.
Begging all the gods to be generous to me
Maybe just this once
For a change.
I’ve wandered aimlessly through shields
Not wanting to disturb the carrier
For fear of the repercussion.
Solace was lonely at times
Which is why it was good to hear you
Even if for a moment.
I wanted you
Like I wanted to take my very next breath.
But I guess you didn’t want me that way.
