Understand the need

Battling the need-

keeping it away with the pitch of a swollen voice

pitch fork.

Feeding the need-

with your ecstasy clenching my legs like a knotted rope

leaves me dangling from the sky above.

Creating the need-

leaping distance of human centuries into land being sung to sleep by a holy ghost

and I- the lead.

Chasing the need-

why chase something that is following you.

Taming the need-

the wild beast roars disenchanted fighting from a large cage breaking the steel bars

one lyric at a time.

Living with the need-

I’ll get back to you.

Finding flipping pages chasing dreams to real to flip

and I feel you.
