Poem - Desire’s Thirst

The poem “Desire’s Thirst” is about the fight with thoughts spawned by addiction and obsession. Life does attempt to evolve once the lessons of pain are presented. An attempt is made to move beyond the grasping fixation. Too often the result is a stumbling fall.

Desire’s Thirst

Life evolved is pain embraced
as the portal to paths beyond
even as we circle back
returned to the echo’s pit
listening to the vibrato
bouncing between there and now
expression of what should not be
resounding true to base desires

no longer slave to pleasure’s taint
even as the same is sought
answering siren’s song from the rocks
‘turn away’ beg the gods
shackles dropped become the quest
not left long on the ground
as the demons ask their due
to reattach the hated chains

keep the chant in front of you
gaze upon the healthy choice
while the whispers are so sweet
‘return to me to ease your mind’
that hole persisting beneath the cloth
asking only to be fulfilled
with no price submitted at the feast
then claiming all for desire’s thirst.
