Desire is

sometimes hard to control.

It grabs your emotions

and takes

a firm hold.


it entices you

to do a bad deed

and makes

you think

it is a need.


it dangles

a change.

You want to change

but you are scared

to grab hold.

You ignore it

again and again,

but your heart bleeds within.

It captures

your soul

and does not let go.

It pushes

you into a corner.

You’re forced

against the wall of a decision.

Your options are clear.

You could take it

and turn it into a reality

or you could take

a desire

and let it fade away.
