The Poetry Of Tao Writer – Desires

Tao Writer  (April 17, 1948 -)

Desires

At what point
do we no longer
desire
our desires?
Like a dream
forgotten
in an instant.
The details
no longer alive—
Hiding there
in the corners
of the foreboding
dark shadows.
Do we forget,
So that we might
dream again,
of the things
we so desire?
