Longing, we say,
is full of endless
The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.
It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.
Deep in my heart I’m concealing
things that I’m longing to say.
Scared to confess what I’m feeling -
frightened you’ll slip away.
