WOTD desire

Desire
It’s much more than want but not as essential as need

It’s in the neighborhood of lust but without the greed

I know it when it’s gone cause I can feel it’s absence

I’m usually caught unaware when it’s near because I’m too dense sometimes

I love the drive it gives me but I’m often left flat in the morning when it skirts away

Maybe my approach isn’t right

Maybe I’m expecting to much and not willing to give enough

Maybe I want it to be to difficult when all it wants or should be is easy

I’d say I don’t know what the fuck I want and that’s what gets me

My inner critic would say I don’t deserve it because how hard have I really worked for it

And that’s when I look in the mirror at 422am and see the dark rings around my eyes and say let’s go make the doughnuts kids
