Read Poem: DESIRE, by Manny Rey

I put my hands
Into the waters of desire
Instantaneously wet with possibilities
A mix of feelings, goals,
achievements, and tangible possessions
Swirl around, in and through
my fingers and grasping hands

I attain what I want,
not because I see it in my hands
But in the lack of not having it
My intentions are sharp, focus and refined
The reasons for wanting are sincere

A strange observation,
determination replaces fear
The act of trying is enchanting
The push-pull game is conjuring
whatever it is
To a state of IS

Until it is
Real and concrete
Manifested, malleable, and tactile
In my hands
In my life
For all to see
What it was I desired
