None Save I

By RaheemaFKM

What would satisfy you, if not the world, if not a sea of wealth raging at your feet?
What would hold you if not golden bonds, if not platinum chains, if not jealous arms?
 
What would command you in all of your glory, in all of your grandeur, in all of your greed?
What would enrapture your stubborn heart, your indulgent eyes, your unrestricted mouth?

Declare to me now, that I might know, the breadth of the yearnings within your soul
 
Expound on your wishes, your cravings, your lusts
 
I’ll gain for you all if you give me your trust
 
Who would sate you better than I?
Who would respond to your every last cry?
 
Who else would take you, who else would care?
 
Who else would love you, who else would dare?
