one desire

half-moon-phase-symbol.png

life piles desires on our hearts
day after day

some scream at us
others creep in unnoticed

and pretty soon we must shave them off
layer by layer

like a dust covered room
thoroughly cleaning what's buried a treasure  

to come back to the ever promising truth:
the heart will only ever desire one thing

and this one thing is Who reveals it all;
for all true desires are an internal matter

i now ache; the presence of Desire Himself is here
I cease to remember all others entirely
