I Desire

Not a fortune, not a picturesque face not prominence, not clout. I desire none of these. Competence, aptitude a clear gaze that shows candor, a heart that knows no deceit. Not a man`s honeyed words, not his lying sentiments. I desire none of these. Sincerity, steadfast an embrace that reflect a pure desire. a man that firmly holds my fragile heart. I desire not objects of avarice, nor lustful caresses. I desire all things pure and virtuous, deeply tainted may they be.
