Wanting, needing, having

by Jake Street

I want to want to need to do something
I need to want to want to need to do something
I have to need to want to want to need to do something
and the pleasure is in the having.
Needing and wanting are just suffering in different winter coats
but having is fulfilling and fulfilling is the inside of a wrapped box
just waiting to be opened because I want to open it
need to open it
have to open it
have opened it
and what I find inside is found wanting;
a box inside another box
a wanting to want and a needing to need and a having to have
I have to have it torn apart to find another box
a smaller box which I rip
to find a tiny box and a little note
I want you, I need you
and the box contains a golden ring
You have me.
