Poem: Desire

Desire is sometimes hard to control.

It grabs your emotions

and takes a firm hold.

Sometimes,

it entices you to do a bad deed

and makes you think it is a need.

Sometimes,

desire dangles a change.

You want to change

but you are scared to grab hold.

You ignore desire

again and again,

but your heart bleeds within.

Desire captures your soul

and does not let go.

It pushes you into a corner.

You are forced against the wall of a decision.

Your options are clear.

You could take desire

and turn it into a reality

or you could take a desire

and let it fade away.
