Need vs. Want

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2016 by bigtuna185

*Author’s note: Also done collectively with my high school poetry class.*

I don’t want to function
I don’t want to laugh
I don’t need to laugh
We don’t need to laugh
We don’t need laughter
We will need laughter
We will need inspiration
We will be inspiration
We can be inspiration.

Eyelids drooping low,
My body thirsts for relief;
My heart seeks to live.

Pillowtalk

I want to sleep,
But I need to live.

I want to dream,
But I have to live.

For one cannot dream
Unless one lives,

And one has not lived
Until one has truly dreamed.
