The Empty Bucket

I carry a desire to live a life full of desires.

Determined, I spend my whole life

until to reach these wants.

I remain unsatisfied-confused knowing I have this desire.

I feel the waste of time rising to the top of my end.

I try to demand satisfaction in this living desire.

Continuous time flows near the rim full of emptiness.

Leaving me with no desire in the choice of moments.

I am longing with lack of time for this fulfillment.

Crazy knowing I have what yearns for such satisfaction.

Here I stay, unsatisfied results to remain desired for satisfaction.

      Well, I always run out of words when it comes to describing your work - always a creative anomaly!

      Great words- how Desire is connected to Life in the system of Time. Desire that just won't fill your life because it cannot be filled itself and always seems empty, aiming for more.

      I applaud thee!

      Everyone wants to fill-up the emptiness they have inside.
