Desire. It's the storm cloud that creeps Across the skull and blocks the light of common sense. It's the janitor with a hidden agenda That doesn't allow any light bulb to come on. A Svengali swinging a pendulum left to right, Until the mind is at its complete beck and call.
Desire. It reaps millions of butterflies; Grown in the stomach. Wanting to be free. It's the cause of the tension in your body. The tsunami in your eyes. The quaking of the hands. Most importantly, it's the internal burning sensation That spreads to become a hole in the heart.
Desire. It's the delicate crumbling of anxiety That melts with the comforting warmth of relief. The fire of temptation; burning so sweet As sweat collects upon victims unknown. The aching in the muscles, the knocking in the chest Of a heart whose cavity has been patched up.
Desire. It's the patch that frays over time And the hole is re-opened. Tears re-flood. The trembling vocal chords and the cracking voice That fall like foundations under searing heat. The eventual destruction and its finality That hit you with a dull metallic taste in the mouth.
Finally knowing that no matter how bad you want it, You will never own it unless under its own terms. Advice? Read the fine print.
