Your Wellbeing


My happiness is confluence
of your wellbeing; it takes
more than a measure of
angst to make it less

But that is me. Whereas you
are dreamlike banality – or
a change in the weather with
cataclysmic effects

Benign blessings left still
comfort; should I be tethered
to them a stranger unless
you have more to say

Or will you say the same
things, still lead me in
constraint to an altar
of your pleasure
