Something Else

from Into the After by Ember After



What is anything worth when you always want something else?


Guild the cage with little trinkets
Shiny fears and anxious dreamings
Manicured contentment
Substituting joy

Take for granted haunted whispers
What comes easy if at all
Precious little out of reach
Hunger unfulfilled

Always need something else
Everything compared to something else

Counting blessings counting days
Crossing fingers wish on stars
Praying to anyone
With power to conceive

If only if only
Never meant more sincerely
If only if only
Never ask again

Always need something else
Everything compared to something else
What does so much and so many
Amount to without something else

Never and always
One and the same
When thirst becomes
The only thing that’s real

Striving and searching
Hoping and building
Watching it all
Come apart again

Always need something else…
