Something

you step slowly
toward the something
that you want
that something
you know
you cannot have
but you don't care
you cannot stop
a few more steps
it sinks its hooks in you
that unattainable
desirous something
toward which your weakness
hurls itself
impales itself
even as you step again
ignoring the warning bells
the dangers
of that something
you want
but cannot have

  6. beautiful...desire is complicated...sometimes it guides us to make wise choices, but often it leads to destructive behavior. Not all bad...not all good...just part of our humaness.
