He thinks I’m a nihilist

that I don’t believe in anything

that my mind is tiny

and narrow

and small

he thinks I have no mind at all

I do believe

I believe in at least one thing

I believe in desire

There would be nothing

without desire

There would be no more than what was

there would be no now

without the beginning

there will be no end

without the beginning

and in the beginning

there was desire

desire for more

desire for something else

something that wasn’t there before

desire for a feeling

a touch a taste a smell

desire to expand into space

and a desire to fit in his heart

a desire to grow and understand

a desire for the universe

that created me to

understand my desires

I believe to desire is to be

fully conscious

fully aware

fully awake

and fully alive.

I desire more

every day

this desire created everything

with creation itself.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
