Wanting More - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

There are days when I can hardly exhale
Emotions keep getting away like a sliding scale
I want to bathe in darkness dressed in red
The moon will make it look as if I had bled

At times nothing is quite right or enough
I'm craving abundance and extraordinary stuff
I want to partake in an eclipse hiding the light
Or watch the blue illuminations of a polar night

After sunset I wish to swim in algal bloom
Get married to a lunar rainbow as my groom
I want to converse with the goddess Venus
Meet Albert Einstein because he is a great genius

I want to understand the mysteries of the Kabbalah
Speak every language and drink sweet Marsala
Dance with Dionysus and learn from the wise Athena
Voice my questions about the life of Mary Magdalena

There are days when I want everything and more
I want to swim in quicksand and eliminate all war
Diving to the darkest corners of every ocean
I want all that and letting go of every emotion
