no 10 desire

What is desire, anyways?
An emptiness longing for an emptiness
separated one from the other by the warmth
of the body and the smoothness
of our skin.
 
Creation through desire as
it cleaves the void into two,
into here and there and
into you and I.
 
The desire realizes me manifest.
But the fulfillment
the collapse of the barriers between
here and there
you and I
would be an annihilation.
 
I have been and not been
and been and not been and
been and not been.
The ceaseless here and there
and you and I.
 
I long to extinguish desire
and desire the end of longing.
There is nothing there and
there is nothing here.
