Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Lust (posted by Sumana)
“Today I want you to write about whatever ‘Lust’ means to you. It may be a special ardor, desire, passion, libido, fancy, craving and all the meanings referring to ‘lust’ in the dictionary.”
An obsession, lust. No matter
the noun in question. Those driven
to power will climb any height,
flatter any person to achieve
their goals. Whole families fall
by the wayside, and friends are
supporters who can aid and bolster.
Easier to grasp lust of lovers.
Quickening heartbeat, fluttering
stomach–anticipation of stolen
moments of heat, burning eyes,
slick bodies sated and spent
where scent itself renews lust.
Do you have an obsession?
