two lessons of our inner desire It's like every town has the ghosts that haunt All those things they've tried to pull from the fire But you'll always get burned; singed by what we desire You will always get burned; burned by what we desire.. desire, controlling the desire. the experience of getting burned. hurt, pain, suffering. so many points in this poem. thank you dear poet. tony
