All I Want - Poem by Bindu Borle

Is there anything which is not desirable?
Simple desires, unfulfilled promises
On a sheet so white, a pristine need.
For gathering stars way above
A million perhaps that can bring forth light!
Or maybe love so unlimited
That I live in stupor forever like a drunkard
Enjoying life and gulping down troubles with each sip
What my mind wants my body doesn’t desire
What my body wants my mind doesn’t aspire
Nothing but chaos between desired and undesired!
Am I asking for more? Or is it my requirement
Not able to define I am stuck between my need and greed
Where one ends and where the other begins…
