© Harm Erkov, Beyond Desire
Your terse word denotes the description of the excited man...*
Excited about something as intangible as the imagination,
Waiting for something as harmful as chance.
Longing to love himself again
And by loving the shapeless desire, the world sinks.
As the tragic error, oh horrors,
Desire instills every minute of waiting
To again become a mockery of all adversity.
