“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”
~George Bernard Shaw
a desire is a strong emotion
it stems from within;
and overpowers all our senses, for what we desire
gives character to our being.
desires run deep, deep within ourselves
master of the unconscious.
unspoken, but but very much there
sneaking out when least expected.
little things in life
that seem to be
without reason, so is a desire
no way to explain. no justifications
but sometimes our souls
run deeper than a puddle. discover reason,
and overcome the desire.
with much grievance, moving ahead.
but the desires not dead
it lurks deep inside
visiting in dreams, making us cry
as is nature, we are bound to forget
just to move onto
another desirable object.
