Impossible to alleviate

Ambivalent nature of human flesh

Making the straight line hard to toe

And I try to curb all these

Cravings

Urges

Needs

Torridity

All these things I embody

Lingering in my senses

Lounging on the far edge of my view

Dallying the tips of my thoughts

Along the luscious fronds of what was once uninhibited pleasure.

Yearning for the carnality of their gratifying essence.

Longingly, I play in these leaves of temptation

Obfuscated by these overwhelming compulsions and lusts

Needing to keep this tiny glowing banished dream alive

Giving my senses the hidden ravishing of my true desires.
