Impossible to alleviate
Ambivalent nature of human flesh
Making the straight line hard to toe
And I try to curb all these
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 inhibited 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.
