Desired

I love poems and creative work especially fictional based content.

Can a being strive on it's own?

Can it bring forth joy?

Should it desire a cause,

Is it forced to seek another?

Nature beckons it to bond,

Be desired and claimed by another,

Should it conform to norms?

The craving too deep,

The wanton desire too strong,

A lover and his mistress declare war,

War of love,

To desire and be desired,

Despite bloody rages,

Of partners slowly forgotten.
