Simple Desire

Simple Desire


Darkness within.
Misery and pain.
On the wane.
By a simple deed.
Uncontrollable need.

Scarlet trails.
What a sight!
Created by a simple bite,
From a blade.
The right choice, made.

Crimson Pool.
Little satisfaction,
From a simple action.
Full circle, it returns.
Desire, burns.

To me it expresses the struggle of succumbing to a solution that you know is only temporary. It's a realization that you are perpetuating an endless cycle when all you want is to figure out how to escape and find a new solution. If I'm right, I can definitely relate. Your elusive details are enticing. I prefer reading something that's not straight forward, I like digging for the meaning.

Yes. Exactly right. I think this one is more understood by people who know the struggle I guess. :-)

I love this. It's beautiful and very deep.

Thank you. It is one of my favorites. I don't think most people feel it or understand it, so I am glad you do. :-)
