Desire

A scary feeling of desire
Is sneaking out of my skin
I have nowhere to hide it
And I just can’t hold it in!

Sometimes it feels so complicated
Like unframed modern art
It’s stronger than I dare to feel
And it’s tearing me apart!

Confronting my fear
Accepting the desire
Let me be part of your life
Scary feeling getting higher!

(This poem is from an old collection of mine. It was written in 2003 and was the last poem written in my youth (from 1998-2003). Originally the drawing had a title ”Why don’t you want me?”, which reflected the deep feeling of neglect and loneliness I experienced through my youth).
