A Desire…

“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.
