Incessant Desire


I don’t need a happy ending
A knight in shining armor
Isn’t what I seek
I live in daily humor
I don’t need you to rescue me
What I crave incessantly
I mean, what I’m asking,
Quite honestly,
Is for you to force me to feel
Submit to my sensitivity
With vigor found inside you
Write until your heart bleeds
Then, fall into me

  1. Amid all the power and the sense you fill in with this poem, its living in humor that I love…and then in the end, as with most all your poems ~ an ending to swoon the emotions. Leaves us all wondering, what goes on in this world of yours?!? πŸ™‚


    • *blush* A view of your Red-Headed Queen, Dalo. πŸ˜‰ Now, what I should have said was not only write til your hands bleed, but also:

      Philosophize until your head pounds,
      Capture photos of life until your heart believes,
      Live extraordinarily until you need,
      Then fall into me.

      Oh, how I do love when you come seeking my poetry. Have a wonderful weekend in Hong Kong, Dalo. πŸ™‚ Thank you for this huge smile this morning. Once again you flatter me with your visit. β™‘


  2. I liked this poem overall, and some parts I especially liked: the daily humor and that you don’t need rescuing. Reminds me of how our culture has moved away from those movies of princesses waiting around for their prince to come — and to more kick-ass heroines. Heroines are so much more interesting with a sword or bow and arrow. Also, I liked the next to last line. But then, I’m biased about writing πŸ™‚


  3. You continue to amaze me with your writing, day after day. Amazing writing, intense emotions, beautiful picture, magnificent poetry. I search continually for writings that fulfill my many emotional states of being. This reader is very, very pleased. Thanks for sharing.
