Awakened by Instinct

Form: Free Verse

Desire lies frozen
like marble untouched by the sculptor
my heart of ice
misunderstanding answers to
the unasked questions
yet my mind is already aware
awakened by instinct
to love
but love requires so much more than desire
it is the empathic connection
one heart to another
a completeness of trust
in the mutual wholeness of existence
that brings beauty to lust
and passion to desire
for that most intimate connection
is not want of casual admittance
but a need for eternal unity
