|desire competition: VOTE.

I see one star in the midnight sky
And I know it's me,
One of four in a combination worthy
I lay back in my coffin and I smile
the serene smile of the already-damned,
in accordance with my wishes.
For the second time in a short life,
I have opened a can of worms
and must enjoy them while they're
as one by one they swim down my
throat and into my
churning stomach, amidst
bile-like emotions and feelings
of confusion, excitement, lust and love.
I desire the desirable and
I listen to sin, I enjoy this
crimson heart while it still beats,
I revel in this absurdity while
it's still unacceptable.
The future does not know my name,
though I glimpse it from my
vantage point, like a humble sentinal
watching his master's banner unfurl
on the battle field,
and the cry of the warrior choked
in his dry throat,
his boots heavy upon his burdened
feet but his spirit
alive, fully newborn and
carried upon the
back of a steed of war.
It is with these ideas in mind
and in heart that I dare
to walk this compromising
path, and I would pray that there is
for we would all be sent straight
No one effects me
Like you do.
It's so easy
To wish you were here
And rehearse what I should tell you
When you're away.
Once I finally face you again though
Caught in the idea
Of rejectiong and abandonment.
Scared little girl
Peers at you through her black curls,
And clings to you late at night.
More afraid of your reaction
To my heart,
Than to any real danger we might face.

Scared Little Girl
I stare back at you
With my hopeless eyes.
Words I can't bring
Myself to say,
Thoughts and feelings
I can't bear to share with you
I frown and stare back into space,
Hoping you didn't notice
The hammering of my heart
Echoing in the darkness,
Threatening to tell the world
My darkest secrets.
4. Desire, I'll cross your palms with silver: Let me have my way
With him -- A sinking feeling I want to stop but love to feel.
When he crosses the floor: Oh desire show him how I feel,
But please don't tell him, just let him feel it too.
Desire, he smiled at me today. He stares and I do know why,
I don't want to look incase he still leers; But I do,
And I do and he does and I know: Oh desire lead him to me,
Where I lie and dream about him every night.
Despair, I do not want it anymore. Make it stop, make it stop;
And throw him away, I want to not care. My heart is for another.
If I wanted to then I would cry: But oh desire let it be,
I want my new love and I don't want him to steal mine.
