The Poetry Marathon 2022 – Hour 15
Original Poetry by DS Coremans
Verse Form – Desire
Lust? What is it that I truly desire
perhaps it is simply to have desire.
That’s not right, I already have desire;
then it is to act upon my desire.
Then yes, this is what I truly desire.
It is never enough to have desire;
one must always try to act on desire
or it will burn out like a dying fire.
The last embers never to reignite,
my passionate fire, my internal fight
My deep, desperate, dutiful desire
You carry me, as I carry your fire.
