With / Without

One day will come when

I will find a person who loves me as 

I want

To be loved.

To be loved not as they need

To live.

And then I shall be with – then in

Deed and fact.

In the meantime, a necessary default

Of the state I am current in

Is to satisfy my life and love 

With simpl[es] 

Learning 

To be without.

And so time it is,

And for a long time it’s been,

To say hello to absence peaceful

Instead of 

Presence pain; instead 

Of hanging sad

On.

Goodbye to the sighs 

And to the lies that cause 

No charitable conversation   

At all, 

At all, 

At all.
