Desires

There is something you long for
Something pleasant to the eyes
      You secretly thirst for it
    You dream of it all day long
You detest those that possess it
And you secretly wish them evil
   for possessing your precious
            “Gollum’s Precious”
              “The Gold Ring”
            “Frodo’s Inheritance”
    Its evil make its so beautiful.
                Yet you crave it

    The river of your temptations
        Flow from your desires
                    Eve’s fruit
Planted in the midst of the garden
        The center of your heart

            Adam desires Eve
           Eve desires the fruit
   Serpent desires to have the earth
     Why can’t you desire heaven?

         Your desires will always be
          your greatest temptations!
