Not Enough [liz]

My father hates money spent, left unused
I hate time passed without you
We are missing too much

We wait for you
Each week gain and lose
Unnatural rhythm, but you jump right in
How do we find security in a dynamic climate,
Smooth the lines that leave such an impression?

  1. I find myself wondering about the first line, and how it affects the rest of the story. Especially since it seems to contain a contradiction. Unless I'm misunderstanding something.

    The second and third lines of the first stanza are my favorite.
