Need As An Entity

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

She does not need to walk around

in anyone else's head, her own is filled

with all the necessities for survival,

and a bit of solace that was earned

over decades of thinking.

.

She will not accept offerings of how

to do very much anymore. The need

to do and build has fled, the desire now

is to appreciate and wonder.

.

She sits and listens from the inside

with a small smile about to happen near

the corner of the mind. There is a small 

need growing at the edge of an idea

but it will try to grow and be crushed.

.

She needs and what she needs waits

like a trembling newborn surprised

to encounter air and what can be felt.

She needs the thing that will elevate

and free, but she will learn, again,

that free is a part of imagination

and elevation came with breathing.
