The Calling


it calls, and inside this body, I respond

supposed primal urges leap at the chance

too short a time subdued to The Calling

this body burns, it yearns, it longs

that its awakened desire be satisfied

this silenced, throttled mind recoils

despairing the tug of flesh on soul


The Calling
