For as long as I remember, the horse called Desire has always arrived saddled with Guilt, and the best I could do was to ride it delicately and follow the approved path. Desire was not ruled out, but it was subject to some kind of permission or approval. I don’t know when I experienced the first heartbreak of desire, or how many breaks it took for me to hide my desire from myself. This collection of love poems explores the cycle of desire through which love flows into and out of our lives and our hearts. Desire itself has a cycle. It comes out of nowhere, out of an empty place often first when we realize we are lacking something. If not immediately satisfied and if it does not get consumed back into the void, it transforms into wanting, and, at its best, into a yearning or longing from the heart. This longing, when it meets its match, is either extinguished or it evolves into loving. Loving something or someone, especially over time is a strange mix of longing and losing. No matter how much we fight against it or try to keep what we love intact, time and life will take its toll and we will inevitably experience losing. Loss often then becomes an emptiness, a lacking that can start the whole cycle over again.
