those who want too much

to those who want too much,

the most tender, intimate and loving thing
i can say to you is,

i’m listening


whilst the rage in you calls for utter devotion,
worship of you,
until I sacrifice myself at your altar,
know that is all empty,
and void.

to offer you my attention,
doesn’t mean I have to stop being,
there is something greater than you or I,
there’s hearing the magnetic silence between us,
to know we are given not ears, but souls to hear things.
