Oblique Comprehension

I do aim to listen so carefully

But along the way emotions interfere

Making me double take and wonder

If the words I hear are from your mouth

Or direct from out my mind

Wanting, yearning, wishing, imagining.

Desire is not necessarily harmful

If the motive guiding remains pure

And there is an innocent form of want

That covets companionship over lust  

The need to closeness above touch

 Proximity more than satisfaction.
