Overwhelming desire

To reach out and touch

What cannot be held

What cannot be heard.



A burning need

To step into the flames

To unburned that pain

Unto me.



One caress

Is my only request

But to follow through

Would be an end.

The destruction of a masterpiece

Best left incomplete.



The burning pain

That is unquenched Desire

That is Love unrequited

And Fear.

To wonder:

Is it worth it

To lose it all

Just once?



-San Carpenter
