My Quickening Desire

My Quickening Desire

Feel me, love

My quickening desire

is rising with each breath

its flames becoming higher

burning deep emotion

that i cannot contain

I fear that for the want of you

I’ve raged and cursed your name

Each night, I crumble

so small, inside my bed

drowning in the misery

I feel inside my head

This body, broken

the gift I gave to you

the essence you did not inhale

the touch that would not do

Yet, I still love you

my ultimate desire

Were the years of waiting

cast into the fire

Are you a dream

a figment in my mind

or could you have been everything

that I had hoped to find
