Am I wanting you more
than you want me?
Is that the way it
has to be
to make you
in control
the peacock
the sun
to my moon? 

Would I lose you
if I didn’t love you more?
would you gravitate
to another
newer lover? 

People are different
but if I want you more
than you want me
aren’t we out of equlibrium? 

And if I want you more
than you want me
doesn’t that create a yearning
a desire that will need to be filled? 

And if it’s not filled by you
then who?
or must I remain
wanting you more

and still being hungry?
