John The Beloved (part I)

hour-glass

Marginal cost, marginal benefit

The mathematics of loving true

I had hoped that this might be significant

That you could value me

And I could value you

Forgive the return on your investment

After all, it has always been about you

I’m sorry I didn’t realize that sooner

But if all of my days were dollars

You could have been a millionaire

 –

I thought that you could be my Jesus

And I could be your John

That anyone who sees us

Could know the depth and breadth

Of genuine brotherhood

Of authentic human love

But I know that’s not economical

To stretch your assets so thin

It’s funny

The more of my time you let me keep

The more bankrupt I become

 –

Marginal cost, marginal benefit

The mathematics of loving true

I had hoped that this might be significant

That you could value me

And I could value you
