Desire doesn't belong

Desire doesn’t belong........

Desire dives into the ocean of the heart
Like high waves rushing to sweep the sand
Like grey clouds all roaring in unison
Gushing to douse the drought ridden land

Desire yearns to light an enduring spark
Like auburn flames kindled by ignition
Like wildfires raging through still foliage
Untamed, unstoppable beyond inhibition

Desire strives to soar into oblivion with wings
Like master illusionists preparing to levitate
Like aerials gliding and swooping in flight
An unearthly force not meant to gravitate

Desire waits like a treasure to be unraveled
In a forbidden map that is yet to unfold
In cuffs that haven’t yet imprisoned the soul
In fascinating sagas that are left untold

Desire doesn’t belong to a single mortal
Not bestowed nor pre-ordained
“She” resides solely in pristine pleasures
Stoic, defiant, unrepressed, unchained
