Listless and longing for passion;
for an immeasurable escape-
a kind not of my fashion-
hoping that it's not too late.

Listless and longing for passion;
for a sweet and humble change...
searching for that blissful infatuation
that used to leave me aching- why do things stay the same?

Listless and longing for passion;
for that first exciting breath
that once upon a time became a contradiction
of a life longing for even death.

Listless and longing for passion;
for that moment I can exhale,
which will instill upon my life the perfect combination
of the deepest hues and lightest pales.

Listless and longing for passion-
when my youth unfolds and I will live.
'Tis then I'll feel the purest satisfaction
and to you, my love, I will of myself
submissively give.

***For myself I Live,
Live intensely and am fed by life,
and my value, whatever it be, is in my own kind of expression
of that. -Henry James

Dearheart, a perfect description of the balance between the two.

Patience is a virtue, but virtue has never been one of my redeeming qualities.
