Ecstasy

Ecstasy

A Poem by Sarah Marie
"

Generalized view of it

"
Ecstasy stalks the night
Into the light of day,
Roaming over cobbled stones
In search of new prey;
It creeps and slinks like a mist,
Residing everywhere,
Craving attention and young hearts-
Forgive it if it stares.
It lives and breathes
Within overflowing souls,
Awaiting the moment 
When it can consume in whole;
It will not rest until desire is kindled
And lurking longing is found,
Plaguing fools and kings 
Whose hearts are bound 
To duty or honor or even humility-
It will not cease, this ecstasy.

Thanks! :)
This is a dark, devouring ecstasy you weave on the world. And yes, it craves and desires everything it beholds... every life... every breath. Your words are stunningly powerful.
