Juxtaposed

Why must you have it all?
Why can't you ever choose
You say, it was US, WE gave
You the apple
But greed helped you take it
Greed sends you to her
The pull of adoration
Admiration
Gratification
What makes it ok?
When is it right?
To pick and choose
From the WHOLE barrel.
Then, dig again
Bruising layered bare fruit
Proudly offering itself
To your palm.
Who makes the rules?
Why break the rules?
Who cares to write them?
Recite them!
To each other we speak
Empty words of promise
And break them with ease
When darkness falls
Can't you be true
Be Love
Be Whole
Without entourage
On-looking
Seeking
Begging
Stroking!
All or none of me
Everything I see
Will regret seeps
Out of promise.
No patience for perfection
Since offering rejection
Pooled on sweaty palms
Reaching beyond arms
Why?
