hot, strong desire
engulfs me, consumes me
moves from the pits
up, up, filling my mouth
fills each pore and core of me

all the more powerful
for being unexpressed
I shake and tremble with desire
My lips, open and parted
The words die away, unspoken

Unattainable desire
Passionate desire
Desire. Desire. Desire.

(wrote this one day before my paper 7 final exam in BA Eng Hons 3rd year, cos I was driven to despair... and got a 63 in that paper!! so, if you want a 1st div, stop studying and write poems on the exam eve!)
