Object Of Desire

How our perspective on desire can change so much over time
As a younger man,
The object of desire
Was a thing
Two as one-
The moment,
The doing,
The having,
The taking

As an older man,
The object of desire 
Is a feeling
Two as one-
The being,
The you,
The me,
The we

And so I've learned,
The passion of doing
And the feeling of being
Together make us,
An object of desire
