Wishes, needs, desires

I kept an eye some time ago
on wishes, needs, desires,
and watched them disappear
like mist into the sun.

I called them back into the fold
but too much “pity me, oh, please”
filled the nooks and crannies
where once they dwelt content.

They wandered then the ether
dispossessed of power
and floated round and round about
the core from whence they came.

Occasionally a buzz, a shiver and a feel
but gone before mind could react
and reach out determinedly
to grasp what disappeared.

Wishes, needs, desires;
oh, yes, they disappear
but not to say they ever die
in that air of no disease!
