Sweet Desire - Poem by Charles Lara

Sweet desire has
been taken away
and put back
on a shelf
it will be saved
for another lifetime
or another lover
no soft kisses
are left out
for the dreamer
or tight hugs
for the other
infatuation is jammed
inside a bottle and
thrown into an ocean
where it will sink
down to the bottom
until it is swallowed
and never released
between the mermaid
and her sailor
