Apathy*

I’ve lost the desire for desires
I’ve lost the want for wants
I’ve lost the need for needs
All I’ve left is an apathy that daunts

I don’t wish for wishes
I feel neither hunger nor thirst
I don’t fancy any fancies
All I’ve left is an apathy that’s cursed

I don’t aspire for aspirations
I don’t yearn for yearnings
I don’t long for longings
All I’ve left is an apathy that’s burning

I don’t crave any cravings
I don’t ache for any aches
I don’t hanker after hankerings
All I’ve left is an apathy - hard to take

I am not inclined to have an inclination
I am not itching to have an itch
I prefer to not have a preference
All I’ve left is an apathy - deep as a ditch

I am oh so bored of being bored
I need an urge, a yen, a lust
I need an impulse, an appetite, a fervor
I need me a mission - not just a “can” but a “must”
