    I don't want to be interrupted
    I don't want to cry
    I don't want to die
    I don't want to punish
    I don't want to be punished
    I don't want to exclude
    Or be excluded
    I don't want to desire
    I don't want to beg
    I don't want to feel
    Temporary emotions
    That will go away ...
    Because my needs and hunger for something better
    Won't vanish into thin air the way
    These temporary feelings
    Of love, passion, poetry, song & music
    Have been incited in me
    I have been interrupted
    To think about a few things
    Seems like a tease
    To far away to please
    Yet right here
    Like an unwanted mosquito
    But drawn like a moth to a flame
    Hopeless
    Yet let me wander
    Drifting till I can no longer
    See it as a possibility
    Let me hunger
    Till I can longer
    Taste the fruit
    That it brings

    Yet let me wander
    Drifting till I can no longer
    See it

    As a

    Possibility

    oooh, where do I begin? I do know this kind of angst...full of longing and desire...and the unwillingness to settle for less... I feel and have felt the perpetual hoping, against hope, for beautiful yet unseen things...except in visions and the sweetest dreams...

    I do know of this kind...

    thank you

    alyce
