Desire Burns Within, photo by smkybear from flickr


Hunger and thirst
Until what is inside
Comes out in a burst
A yearning tide
Until outpourings
Release and reside

  1. Desire bursting into passion what a great thought.. tight and compact with those sweet rhymes.

  2. if we truly allowed ourselves to thirst as such...
    i think we might see a bit more passion
    just saying

  3. yes, this!
    may my desires align with His

  4. nice poem..I apply it to the passion we should have for all things in life to 'Hunger and thirst
    Until what is inside
    Comes out in a burst' for each experience..desire and taste with passion
