What Is Lust?

by C Cattaway   Nov 12, 2019

How easy is it to fall?
How relaxed do you make me feel?
What is lust, if not a progression,
To something more concrete; more real.

How can I separate these thoughts?
Convinced I want something else,
I hold back from pushing you away,
Lacking with my sense of self.

Afraid you will open your eyes,
And see why everyone else left.
Will you walk away when you notice
I'm never going to be your best?

But how can I tell if these worries
Are fear, or love developing?
And what if I fall, will that finish this off,
For wanting you to give your everything?

    Some interesting thoughts here. You often hear the question 'what is LOVE' but not often the lust question. Purely instinctive or - potentially - the beginning of something far more? Not sure.

    Anyway, all the best
