Desire (For Writer's Island)

My heart pounding intensely,

a steady drumming in my ears,

a tangible longing at the core of my soul,

hanging suspended in mid-air,

My blood is liquid heat,

rushing to my face,

leaving my cheeks scarlet,

and leaving my palms drenched.

Very good use of words. It almost makes me warm on this very cold morning. =)

Very nice poem - sounds like it could be soothing or panicky - I hope it is soothing for your. Take care - Kellan

Loved the poem. I agree with Kellan, its soothing and panicky.

It's been a long time for me, but I think you've correctly defined desire - or at least its immediate symptoms! Really nice work!

this is so intense and well written!
except for the part about longing... I am feeling the other symptoms from my awful head cold! :)
