Squarely sits
the flawed frame
around my desire

Unarmoured in my chest,
a freedom lies caged

Outside sits
the wanting love
that I reject

Temperamental walls
cry for collapse,
but I make it a game
to keep them steady

The constant lingering
of devilish lust
palpitates my heart

And I, for lack of need
find it impressive
