The Hinge of Desire


Grasping at each moment of interconnectedness,

Holding it close,

Understanding it’s grace,

And importance.

A heart smiles broadly,

And fills itself with life giving blood.


The bliss of human love is superseded by the shared love of God.

And glimpsed for many, coupled peace-filled instants.




Only to be interrupted by a self, asking for more.

Unsatisfied with perfect love, even when felt,

It goads the mind,

To overcome the heart,

And move somewhere where control dominates once more.

To  fill a world with self-centered desire,


Which has no goodness, love or relation to others.

Only destruction of self and relation with God.
