I don’t want to be adrift
without you –
don’t want to need
your direction
or be defined
by your prescence

I don’t want to feel adrift
without you –
but all my other sails
have failed
and in these dark waters
the air is still.

I don’t want to hold aloft
without you –
or wait for your push
to begin,
I sit well in the water
can ford my own stream
my compass is true

but I want you.
