Author's Notes:
I asked for a subject and an object and promised to write a drabble. The subject was 'lust.' The object was 'Methos.' (And despite what the word count is showing, it is exactly 100 words!)


 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I’m bored; he’s a mystery.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I’m stolid; he leads me astray.

 

Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I’m a fool; he teaches.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I’m alone; he’s a friend.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, time is an ocean; he’s a compass.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I starve; his scent is bread.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I freeze; his body is fire.

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, I burn; his mind is water

 

“Why?” the Sphinx said.

Because, he’s dangerous; I need to live.

 

The Sphinx smiled.
