You Want It to Be

we have kingdoms of greatness
kingdoms of time
kingdoms of precious natures and
kingdoms of mine

it’s not a glass that you can fill
it’s not a watch you can wind
it’s unfixable
it is itself

watching, waiting, watching
nothing seems to pass
unfolded lives conjuring
weather from the East

you never smiled when
I said your name
never laughed when I cried
never sang a word of praise

you are mine and I want you
you are mine, and I will have you
you are mine, and
you aren’t mine
