About the work

This lust for life has swept me up

my head and heart can't get enough

it's thrown me from the straight and narrow

it's coursing through my bone marrow

it's raging up from deep within

and effervescing from my skin

I don't want this lust to leave

so I've tightly strapped my heart to my sleeve

but I tied it with some threadbare threads

when I should have used duct tape instead

I've no idea if this lust will last

I'm like a ship without a mast

without an anchor to hold me fast

as I watch my feet float freely past

I'll have to find some higher ground

the water's rising as it's crashing down.
