Kill Desire




Kill desire--


That bloody heartless tease;


That empty promiser,


That sweet and damned disease.




I want a body of rags,


Numb sticks and blowing ash;


I want the wind to howl,


And I will howl back.




Kill desire--


Kill mind and flesh and heart;


Lay down again in mother earth,


Where rot and roses start.

Thanks, dear Cynthia and Writerwoman, for your comments! I was really angry and down when I wrote this. Sometimes that energy produces a striking piece of writing, even though it isn't fun to be in that space.

Love dis: "I want a body of rags,
Numb sticks and blowing ash;
I want the wind to howl"
