Anything a heart desires

Locked away

Listening to you without return


I can't imagine a world without it


Nobody could maintain it

Everybody could have it

Except those who choose not to

Don't tell me you don't have that choice


If the world were to fall

Somewhere it would call to everyone






Never asking questions

Ever questioning it

Entirely full of endorphines

Don't tell me you don't feel it.



Once romanticized, now never absorbed

Varying from person to person

Even the outcasts


To live another moment

Obtusely repressed


Surrounded by it, whether

Undermining the system, under

Radical defiance, we're still just as

Visually stimulated with an

Intense feeling

Viral videos can't provide

Everywhere you are, it's all around you.


.  We just don't pay enough attention sometimes.
