Ambition

Location

ambition

 

the burn of desire

the difference between

what you want

and what you have

 

it cuts like a knife

into a birthday cake

leaving you bloodied

in a pool not of crimson

but of crystal blue

ambition

 

drowning in your dreams

the water slips into your lungs

and you let it

because you love the taste

of hope

sweet like cotton candy

 

you fear

you flail your limbs

it is only but human nature

to fear for what comes next

when it’s hard to breathe

 

but hysteria always fades

and you will swim

you will fight

for the impenetrable desire

you will fight

to the death

 

you will prove them wrong

they are all wrong
