I want more

it’s not enough

I get what I want

but then don’t want it anymore

that was a lie

its not always like that

just like that when I’m bored

but that’s not quite right either

It’s more like I’m a seeker

walking along the beach

combing for something complete

but when I come upon it

I crush it in my hand

calcified chips slip

and fall back to the sand

and I never think of it again

I should have let her know

my secret to losing easily

I am a master at convincing

they passed through my fingers

because I made it so

it means nothing when they go
