Blogmas Day 18: Necessity

Necessity

You were once the boat,

That kept my head above water,

And even amidst the sinking,

I would not abandon ship.

 

You were once the rain,

In the barren desert of my heart,

And even now at the oasis,

I crave water’s salty taste.

 

You were once the candle,

That brought light to my darkness,

And even if the candle burnt out early,

I’d keep it on my shelf.

 

I needed your brightness,

But still wanted your rain.

You were brought out of necessity yet,

Want’s how you remain.
