the burn of desire

the difference between

what you want

and what you have


it cuts like a knife

into a birthday cake

leaving you bloodied

in a pool not of crimson

but of crystal blue



drowning in your dreams

the water slips into your lungs

and you let it

because you love the taste

of hope

sweet like cotton candy


you fear

you flail your limbs

it is only but human nature

to fear for what comes next

when it’s hard to breathe


but hysteria always fades

and you will swim

you will fight

for the impenetrable desire

you will fight

to the death


you will prove them wrong

they are all wrong
