POETRY: Want Poem


A cruel mistress of suffering and joy.

It’s allure captivates and pulls the mind,

An endless cycle of pain and fleeting happiness. 

A scale of want and need tipping,

How could this unstoppable juggernaut stop?

We’ll always to move till our grasp is meaningless,

By Clay Patterson, Contributor

Patterson writes, “I’ve always had a knack for writing and the short and quick format of poems have allowed me to write without worrying too much about finishing a project. I’ve written short stories, but I feel more confident in my poems as they material was written with more belief and emotion behind it than the stories.”
