What Do You Want?

  • by

Bittersweet those words
"What do you want?"
Spoke by lovers clasped in embraces
to be envied by all and nothing.
Whined by captive to captor
in darkness, alone, afraid.
To pursuer, customer, patient, host
and to me, by you
"what do you want?"
As I watch the door
And I touch the bed
And I ask myself
What do you want?
