Today, I needed

Today, I needed…

Something good.

One day, I needed–
(And I did not ask)
Yesterday, I wanted–
(But I failed to voice it)
Tomorrow, I will have a desire
(Will I voice it?)

Today, I needed…
I needed something good
I needed something good to happen to me, or
I needed something good to be done by me

But, I needed
And when you need
You must, because if you don’t
If you (silence it, muffle it, hide it, ignore it, pretend it doesn’t exist, lie to yourself, keep it inside, burn it away, bury it, kill it kill it kill it thrice)

It doesn’t remove the need.
It removes your ability to be satisfied.

Today, I needed something good
And I got it because I let myself own that need
And I made myself lay in the bed of satisfaction.
