Everybody seeks.
I seek.
And through manipulation, I con –
    To grab
        What I want
            From a difficult world.
Everybody cons.
Everybody grabs –
    Manipulates, steals, twists –
        Everybody wants
Something.

I want something.
Want to feed the crazy, restless,
    Lonely, lost spirit
        That hungers
            Always
Because
I think
    Like you do
        That I am a fragment,
A shard.

More than a shard,
I am a piece
    Of the whole
        Of which you are a piece
            And the pieces
Never add up
Because they are lies.
    Wicked,
        Stupid,
            Foolish,
Foolish lies.
