Desire

Grasping, craving, mindlessly diverting myself
Looking for those famed fifteen minutes
Attaching myself to whatever comes to mind
In my thoughts i flirt with every beautiful girl
Behind the mask of shyness desire lures

As she looks to fulfill her animal lust
She always manages to betray my trust
Trying to impress all who come close to her
While she forsakes everything i hold dear
Once i give in to her i always regret

Seeing the futility of fighting my desire
Choosing wisdom over her ignorance
I give up my resistance with a smile
Letting go of the false need to impress
The mind rests even with all its mess

I become aware of desire once more
As she comes to rest in my heart
She whispers that
Her greatest desire
Is to remain forever desireless

Attachment

So subtle your arms I never felt your touch
Somehow you wrapped yourself around me
Keeping me in sweet dreams of misery
Making me belief your fairytales of wonder
Always one step ahead erasing your trace
Undeniably present in your false absence
Dubbed the root cause of all suffering
I realize you create clinging to life
For inside the fear of death remains

What will remain if there is none?
