It seethes inside me, this desire.
Hot, it roils and churns,
Emotion, so dark and terrifying,
Writhing for release, aching for freedom,
Threatening to undo my life.
But I trap it, I hold it back,
Scared and afraid of what havoc it may wreak upon the world.
Scared and afraid of what havoc it may wreak upon me!

Ever in its cage, its safe,
Yearning, needing, always determined to escape my grasp.
Always striving to blossom, to grow,
To encompass and ruin me forever,
This need, this desire, this emotion,
