want(s): ramblings of a girl who should sleep more often and think (muse) less


3:23
I was unable to sleep, for once not because I was troubled but because I could not stop thinking and musing, and then this came to me very suddenly:
1.
want
i want
i want you
2. 
in want
i am in want
i am in want of you
I don’t mean any of what I just said about you. (The you is just a placeholder for a nameless and formless entity I have yet to discover.)
But this much is true: I want (and I am in want of), in every sense of the word, desiring and lacking.
