Here’s a new one for you. See if you can guess what the poem is referring to. It’s describing something that everyone has. A desire that holds all of us captive. Enjoy.

Condition

Reckless abandon,
but really, it’s not.

You’re consumed with something,
and even you don’t see it.

You’ve abandoned nothing,
open your eyes.

The reflection it stirs.
You’re captivated.
Refusing to remove yourself.

You hate it.
You love it.
You are engrossed by it.

There is no escape.
You never let it go.
It is simply ingrained.

It’s within all.
